Bell Street Bridge, Coburg

The Victorian Government, funded by the Safe Travel in Local Streets Program, has completed pedestrian safety treatments on Bell Street bridge in Coburg.


To improve safety for all road users, we introduced traffic calming treatments intended to provide a safer, more enjoyable, and less stressful environment. 

It’s been 12 months since we completed these works, and we want to hear from pedestrians and bike riders about how they are now experiencing the road environment. 

The survey is open from Monday 24 April to Friday 5 May and will take 5 to 10 minutes to complete. 

We particularly want to hear from people who walk and bike ride in the area, but the survey is available for all road users to complete.

Project Overview

The Victorian Government, funded by the Safe Travel in Local Streets Program, completed safety treatments on Bell Street Bridge in Coburg in 2022.

We installed new line marking (dragon teeth-shaped and SLOW DOWN line markings) along Bell Street between Nicholson Street and Elizabeth Street. 

The dragons’ teeth line markings are intended to provide visual cues to drivers to encourage reduced speeds and greater attentiveness. The traffic lanes appear narrower, making drivers travel in the centre of their lanes, away from the footpaths.

We also installed new pedestrian warning signs on the approach to the Bell Street Bridge.
