Work is underway on one of Ballarat's most dangerous roads.

A $12 million upgrade to the Midland Highway between Ballarat and Creswick is expected to turn the notorious stretch of road into one of the region’s safest, and create more than 50 local jobs.

11 kilometres of the Highway will be upgraded with flexible safety barriers, three new roundabouts at Millers Road, Cummins Road and Kennedys Road, as well as new overtaking lanes and wider road shoulders.

The road has seen 19 crashes in the five-year period up to December 2015, killing three people and seriously injuring 10.

The project is being delivered as part of the Victorian Government’s Towards Zero Road Safety Strategy in partnership with the Transport Accident Commission and VicRoads.
