Mornington pedestrian safety improvements

We’re improving safety around the Mornington Commercial Centre and Foreshore area as part of Towards Zero

The Victorian Government is investing $1.4 billion into Towards Zero, a plan to achieve fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injuries by 15% on Victoria’s roads. 

More specifically, $100 million has been allocated to making roads safer for pedestrians and cyclists.

Update

During September 2017, we engaged with community and stakeholders, encouraging them to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns on our proposed plans for Mornington Commercial Centre and Foreshore Area including Main Street. The feedback we received was largely in support of our proposed safety improvements, as well as some other suggestions which we have taken on board for future opportunities.

This project is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.

Background

Mornington Commercial Centre and Foreshore area is a busy hub for local pedestrians and cyclists.

Between 2012-2016, there were 29 crashes involving pedestrians or cyclists in this area.

Details

The safety improvements we’re making include:

  • set speed limits at 40km/h at the Mornington Activity Centre
  • new raised pedestrian crossings on Main Street, Waterloo Place, Eastern Ring Road, the Esplanade and Schnapper Point Drive
  • two concrete islands on the Esplanade opposite the Mornington Bowls Club and on Main Street between York and Kent Streets
  • electronic signs and pavement markings at the commencement of the 40km/h zone on the Esplanade, Main Street and Barkly Street
  • improved line markings.
