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. 

Update - May 2020 

A safer, reduced speed limit of 40km/hr now applies between the hours of 7am to 7pm on Rosanna Road between Banksia Street and Brown Street. The electronic speed signs highlight the time-based speed limits to help address safety concerns raised by the local community.  

Works to construct new traffic lights at the St James Road and Rosanna Road intersection are now complete. Our crews installed new traffic signals, resurfaced the intersection and removed the existing pedestrian crossing.

The newly installed pedestrian crossing near Brown Street is now active and allows for a safer crossing of Rosanna Road for pedestrians. 

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.
