New signalised pedestrian crossing at the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout

Planning is progressing for new pedestrian crossing facilities, and traffic signals at selected entrances of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout in Rosebud.

Project update – August 2021 

We’re currently undertaking site investigations and developing a design to help pedestrians and cyclists safely cross the Mornington Peninsula Freeway in Rosebud. 

The features of the design will include:

  • A new signalised pedestrian crossing on the west side of the southern Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout.
  • Traffic signals at selected entrances of the roundabout to manage traffic flow during peak times.

These traffic signals at selected roundabout entrances will help manage traffic flow by creating gaps and reducing excessive queuing when the pedestrian crossing signals are activated. 

Construction works are expected to begin in mid-2022.

Project background

The Mornington Peninsula Freeway is an important route linking Melbourne to growing communities in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula region.
 
Approximately 14,000 vehicles travel along the section of Mornington Peninsula Freeway between the Jetty Road roundabout and Boneo Road every day, with 10% of traffic being heavy vehicles.
 
The local community have expressed their concerns about pedestrian safety when crossing the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, near the southern Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout.
 
The Australian Government has committed $5 million to install new pedestrian crossing facilities and traffic signals at selected entrances of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout in Rosebud.
 
This project will:
  • provide a safe place for pedestrians and cyclists (including local school children) to cross the Mornington Peninsula Freeway as they travel between Rosebud and Rosebud South
  • promote healthy living and encourage more people to walk or cycle
  • provide operational and safety benefits during peak traffic times.
