Community Gateways

We've improved road safety in small towns across regional Victoria, as we work towards a future where no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.

About the project

Many of Victoria’s towns are connected by high-speed roads, where drivers and riders are required to significantly lower their speed when approaching built up areas. 

Motorists can miss speed signs as they enter a town, making them more likely to travel over the speed limit when driving through the community.

As part of Towards Zero, a partnership between the Victorian Government and Transport Accident Commission (TAC) we’ve installed community gateways on major roads to help motorists identify the safer speed as they enter regional towns. 

Community gateways include: 

  • large signs on green backgrounds, displaying the speed limit and town’s name
  • eye-catching painted lines on the road, leading into the gateway 

These new signs and line markings make it easier to see speed limits and slow down, improving safety for people living in and travelling through regional communities.
