Burwood Village speed change

We’ve made the speed safer along Toorak Road/Burwood Highway through Burwood Village for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and tram passengers.

The new safer speed is 40km/h from 7am to 8pm along Toorak Road/Burwood Highway between Charles Street and Scott Grove near Burwood Village.

Project background

The Victorian Government has invested $1.4 billion in road safety improvements through the Towards Zero program. The program aims to ensure no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.

Burwood Village is a vibrant community hub with access to shops and public transport. From mid-2014 to mid-2019, there were 19 reported crashes along Burwood Highway between Charles Street and Scott Grove with four of these crashes resulting in serious injuries.

About the project

We’ve made the speed safer on Toorak Road/Burwood Highway through Burwood Village  between Charles Street and Scott Grove from 60km/h to 40km/h between 7am and 8pm. New static and electronic speed limit signs have been installed leading up to and throughout the area to inform commuters of the new speed limit.
