Trucks banned on key bayside road from February 25

TRUCKS will be banned on a section of a busy southeast arterial road, the state government has announced.

Beach Rd, between Port Melbourne and Mordialloc, will be truck-free from February 25, according to a report from The Herald Sun. 

Trucks making local deliveries, loading or unloading goods, or with no other route will be exempt from the ban.

Roads minister Jaala Pulford said the ban will improve traffic flow and reduce congestion on the key route.

"We're leaving local roads for cars and moving freight onto freight routes, which will improve traffic flow and increase safety for the hundreds of visitors to the area as well as the local community," she said.

Since 2017, there has been a range of truck curfew times trialled along Beach Rd between Bay St in Port Melbourne and Nepean Highway in Mordialloc.
