Queens Parade Safety Improvement Project

The safety improvements we're making along Queens Parade in Clifton Hill as part of Towards Zero

The Victorian Government is investing $1.4 billion to implement 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. 

Project update

Works started in December 2017 and are expected to be completed by September 2018.

Project background

Around 16,000 people drive through Queens Parade every day, including 390 heavy vehicles. From 2010-2015, there were 14 crashes involving pedestrians along this section of road, which left 8 pedestrians seriously injured.

Road safety improvements

We’ve made the following safety improvements for cyclists and pedestrians along Queens Parade:

  • raised the pedestrian priority crossings at intersecting local streets to make them more visible
  • installed a wombat crossings at the roundabout of Gold Street/Hodgkinson Street to help pedestrians cross more safely
  • installed better street lighting at the roundabout of Gold Street/Hodgkinson Street to make pedestrians more visible
  • installed a red arrow for Queens Parade traffic turning left into Wellington Street to give pedestrians a head start crossing Wellington Street 
  • relocated pedestrian operated signals for Queens Parade crossing near Heidelberg Road
  • reconstruction of the crossing at the Turnbull Street/North Terrace intersection
  • landscaping in the centre median strip along Queens Parade, between Heidelberg Road and Wellington Street, to encourage the use of designated pedestrian crossings.
