High Street shopping strip speed change

We’ve improved safety for people on the High Street shopping strip in Thomastown by extending the 40km/h speed zone.

Project update - July 2021

From early 2020, we reduced the speed on High Street (between Chappell Street and Spring Street), Thomastown to 40km/h between 8am to 9pm seven days a week.

Improving safety for people walking and bike riding will help save lives and encourage people to use active modes of transport. When pedestrians and cyclists are involved in a crash with a vehicle, they’re at a higher risk of being severely injured or killed - that’s why we’re upgrading highly utilised pedestrian areas - such as High Street. 

Safer Roads 

This project is a part of Towards Zero - the Victorian Government’s plan for a future where no one is seriously injured or killed on our roads.
