Improving road safety in Coburg

We’ve improved safety along Bell Street and Sydney Road in Coburg.

Update - July 2021

Coburg Central is home to a busy shopping and dining precinct and the Coburg Leisure Centre, making it busy for people and traffic.

To improve safety for people, we’ve: 

  • Implemented a safe speed of 40km/h from 7am-7pm on Bell Street (Between Service Street and Pentridge Boulevard) and Sydney Road (between Bell Street and O’Hea Street). 
  • Installed raised pedestrian crossings on side roads to slow down traffic when entering the main roads
  • Improved line markings to encourage drivers to travel at the reduced speed
  • Widened the signalised pedestrian crossing at Elm Grove.

Safer Roads 

This project is funded as part of Towards Zero. The State Government is investing $1.4 billion to achieve fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injury by 15% on Victoria’s roads.
