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 traffic.vicroads.vic.gov.au to check for any issues on their planned routes.
