Council close to completing Bentons Road upgrade


Mornington Peninsula Shire will soon be completing the third and final stage of the Bentons Road upgrade in Moorooduc – one of the Peninsula’s significant east-west roads.

As part of the Federal Government’s Roads to Recovery funding program, the final stage will be improving the section of Bentons Road between Moorooduc Highway and Derril Road.

This stage follows the already completed widening of Loders Road, as well as the construction of the roundabout at the intersection of Bentons Road and Derril Road.

Stage three works will include:

  • widening of the existing road pavement.
  • installation of new and upgrade of existing drainage infrastructure.
  • installation of crash barriers.
  • an upgrade of the intersection of Gorman/Rickards/Bentons Road.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Sam Hearn said “the Shire is working hard on improving our vital road network across the Peninsula”.

Mornington Peninsula Shire Cerberus Ward Councillor Kate Roper said “projects such as this one, are part of Council’s commitment to providing a safer and more user-friendly network for our community”.

Construction will take place from January to June 2021. It is anticipated to be completed mid 2021.
