Dandenong central pedestrian project

We’re improving safety around the Dandenong Central Activity District as part of Towards Zero

The State Government is investing $1.1 billion into Towards Zero, a plan to reduce Victoria’s road toll to fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injuries by 15%. More specifically, $100 million has been allocated to making roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists. 

Project background

The Dandenong Central Activity District is a busy hub of business, retail, medical and educational activity. 

Between 2012 and 2016, there were 38 recorded crashes involving pedestrians in the Dandenong Central Activity Centre, leaving 16 people seriously injured.

The safety improvements we’re making include:

  • lower speed limits in busy pedestrian areas
  • installation of raised pavements at key intersections within the Dandenong Central Activity Centre
  • raised platforms to slow down approaching vehicles

Project update

Between August – October 2017, we engaged with community and stakeholders, encouraging them to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns on our proposed plans for Dandenong Central. The feedback indicated support for the implementation of speed reductions and the associated intersection treatments.

Speed limit changes are scheduled to start in February followed by the installation of raised pavements. 

The project is expected to be completed by September 2018.
