Rosanna Road Safety Improvement Project

The Victorian Government has invested $3.12m to deliver a safer and more reliable Rosanna Road in Heidelberg.

Rosanna Road is one of the busiest corridors in Melbourne’s growing north-east. These improvements will support the thousands of local residents who rely on this vital corridor each day.

About the project

This project will deliver:

  • A safer Rosanna Road between Banksia Street and Brown Street, with 40km/h time based speed reductions, supporting access to nearby schools and shopping precincts (this speed will be in place from 7am-7pm, with electronic speed limit signs)
  • New pedestrian operated crossings near Brown Street and Yarra Street to provide safe places for you to cross Rosanna Road
  • New traffic lights at the intersection of Rosanna Road and St James Road to improve safer traffic movements at this intersection.

View a map of the safety improvements along Rosanna Road Heidelberg. As we complete these works, traffic conditions will change, so plan ahead and allow extra travel time.

Access will be maintained for local residents during these works.  

Construction for this project is underway, with civil and electrical works currently being undertaken. You will see crews constructing new pedestrian signals near Brown Street and installing electronic speed limit signs between Banksia and Brown Street.
