Trucks are temporarily being banned from a section of the Monash Freeway.

Starting Monday, trucks will be banned from the right-hand lane of the freeway between Huntingdale Road and Jacksons Road.

The trial will run for nine months.

VicRoads’ acting CEO Peter Todd told Neil Mitchell lane-changing increases the crash rate.

“We’re hoping that… this will reduce side-swipes and rear-end crashes,” he said.

Mr Todd said VicRoads wants to hear feedback from truck drivers about how the trial is going.
