VICROADS has responded to calls for works on a dangerous stretch of road on the outskirts of Wonthaggi that has troubled cyclists and caused numerous accidents.
The 300m to 400m stretch of road along Korumburra-Wonthaggi road between Heslop and Lynnes Road has seen at least five cyclist accidents in the past 12 months, with large cracks in the road proving hazardous and patch-up jobs causing an incredibly slippery surface.
VicRoads representatives met with local cyclists last week to discuss the issue.
“We’re planning to carry out resurfacing work and removing grass from the edge of the road to improve water run-off, which has been contributing to the uneven road surface,” a VicRoads representative said.
“We welcome feedback from the community via our online engagement tool at engage.vicroads.vic.gov.au.”
