San Remo to Newhaven, Phillip Island

< back

The bridge across to Phillip Island, quite like a miniature version of Hobart's Tasman Bridge, is a two lane affair from San Remo to Newhaven. On very busy days, for example when the Motor Racing is held at Phillip Island Motor Racing Circuit, the two lanes are divided further to provide three lanes, ie; two lanes returning to Melbourne. This local quirk is called the "Blue Line", shown below. Signs indicate when this extraordinary feat of ingenuity and daring is in operation. The Blue Line effect extends for many kilometres, in fact to Tooradin, where finally peace of mind is restored as double lane divided roadway resumes.
