The Andrews Labor Government has boosted safety for pedestrians outside the Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club by installing a pedestrian refuge island on the Great Ocean Road.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today announced works have been completed on the new island, which will provide safer access for pedestrians as they cross the busy road to and from the clubhouse.
The new island, near the intersection of Harvey and Murray Streets, allows pedestrians to access a safe half-way point during periods of heavy traffic.
The project is a collaboration between the Labor Government, VicRoads, Anglesea SLSC and the Great Ocean Road Coastal Committee.
Works began in November 2017 and have been completed in time for the busy surf lifesaving season.
