DESPITE years of community frustration, and a new Facebook page calling for them, there are still no plans to introduce overtaking lanes on the Sale-Maffra Rd.

In 2017 and early 2018, Regional Roads Victoria improved safety along Maffra-Sale Rd by widening the centreline to create a safe distance between traffic travelling in opposite directions, sealing road shoulders, installing flexible safety barriers on the left-hand side of the road and adding rumble strips to left-hand side and centre line markings to alert drivers if they are moving out of their lane.

These works included providing sufficient pullover areas and access breaks.
