THE speed limit on Ocean Beach Road, Sorrento, and surrounding streets has been cut to 40kph.
This comes after Mornington Peninsula Shire received $2.5 million from the state government for improved traffic management works, as well as road upgrades near the ferry terminal.
The shire is working with Searoad Ferries, Department of Transport (VicRoads) and the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions on the works and upgrades.
“Keeping our community safe in high traffic areas is essential, particularly during the peak season,” the mayor Cr Anthony Marsh said.
Other works due to begin next year include a roundabout at the intersection of Point Nepean Road and Hotham Road, Sorrento, and upgrades to Hotham Road between The Esplanade and Point Nepean Road.
