Strzelecki Highway – Crightons Hill Realignment

The project seeks a realignment of the Strzelecki Highway at a location known as Crightons Hill, Leongatha North. The Strzelecki Highway connects South Gippsland Shire with the Latrobe Valley and this section of the highway connects Leongatha, the Shire’s largest town, with Mirboo North, the third largest town.

The section at Crightons Hill is steep and particularly tight with a number of fatal accidents occurring on this section of road. To reduce accidents, some road widening has been undertaken, wire rope barriers installed, and speed restrictions introduced. These are only temporary treatments and a complete realignment is required to provide a long-term solution to ultimately solve the issue.

The highway carries a large amount of freight and passengers, including tourists between Bass Coast, South Gippsland, and the Latrobe Valley. This project is currently in the cost benefit stage at Regional Roads Victoria.
