A FREE VicRoads shut­tle bus will op­er­ate at Mt Hotham this win­ter.

The road’s author­ity says the bright orange “Travel Happy” themed bus is a re­minder for mo­torists that re­spect­fully shar­ing the road al­lows every­one to have a safe and pos­i­tive ex­pe­ri­ence.

VicRoads di­rec­tor of North East­ern Re­gion, Bryan Sher­ritt said while hol­i­day­mak­ers carve up the slopes, they would also be carv­ing out snow on the roads at Mount Hotham to make driv­ing safer and eas­ier for mo­torists.

“We ex­pect to clear ap­prox­i­mately 82km of the Great Alpine Road from Har­ri­etville to Omeo and snow clear­ing and ice treat­ment will take place as re­quired 24 hours a day so our team will be very vis­i­ble in the area,” Mr Sher­ritt said.

Drivers are en­cour­aged to visit traf­ to check for any is­sues on their planned routes.
