Moreland Road Pedestrian Safety Improvements

The Australian Government and Victorian Government are improving safety on Moreland Road in Brunswick West to prevent crashes involving pedestrians and save lives.

What we’re doing

We’re making it safer to cross busy Moreland Road in Brunswick West by installing a new pedestrian crossing with new lights and kerbing. 

The new crossing is being installed between Everett Street and Walhalla Street and will create safer walking and cycling connections for the local community wishing to access Dunstan Reserve and Brunswick North West Primary School. 

The location of the pedestrian crossing has been chosen as a priority, based on safety, accessibility and connectivity. 

To make Moreland Road in Brunswick West safer for school children, residents and other pedestrians, we’ll:

  • install a set of traffic lights and a raised pedestrian crossing 
  • carry out kerb and pavement work
  • resurface parts of Moreland Road.

What this means for you

Works on this important safety upgrade will start in October 2022 with the new lights switched on early in 2023. 

Our crews will generally be working Monday to Friday, between 9.30am and 3.30pm. 

When working at night, our crews will be working between 8.30pm and 5.00am. 

During works, we may need to close a lane and introduce temporary safer speeds. 

Traffic management will be on-site during work hours to help everyone move through the area safely.

You may notice the new traffic signals we’ve installed are not operational straight away. Please obey nearby static signs until power is connected by the local power authority and signals are switched. 
 
Changes to parking 

We understand the value of parking to local residents living along Moreland Road. 

After revisiting our designs, we were able to reduce parking losses from what was originally proposed. 

To deliver this important safety upgrade, we need to remove four on-street parking spaces; two on the northern side and two on the southern side of Moreland Road between Everett Street and Walhalla Street.
