MORE than 30 kilometres of rumble strips have been installed on the Midland Highway between Benalla and Mansfield.
Although it falls under the Rural City of Benalla’s jurisdiction, the section of road is commonly referred to as “Mansfield’s” because of its proximity.
The rumble strips, known as tactile line markings, begin near Lake Nillahcootie and have been installed down the centre and on the sides of the road to alert drivers when they stray out of line.
Warning signs will also be installed to inform drivers that this is a high risk zone for crashes.
Benalla mayor Justin King said he was pleased VicRoads had responded so quickly to his request for action.
“This stretch of road has been a real concern for our residents following a spate of serious incidents,” he said.
