Rosebud safety improvements

We're improving safety around Point Nepean Road in Rosebud as part of Towards Zero. The State Government is investing $1.4 billion to achieve fewer than 200 deaths by 2020 and reduce serious injury by 15% on Victoria's roads.

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


Speed reductions will begin in mid-February followed by the other safety treatments.

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



Point Nepean Road in Rosebud is a busy hub for shopping, the beach and hospital, and it’s a popular tourist destination in the summer months.

Between 2011 and 2015, there were 65 record crashes involving pedestrians or cyclists in this area. 


The safety improvements we’re making include:

  • reducing the speed limit along Point Nepean Road from 60km/h to 50km/h between two existing 50km/h zones in Rosebud
  • adding new sections of green pavement for bike lanes
  • installing new pedestrian lights on Point Nepean Road near First Avenue
  • installing new raised medians along Point Nepean Road
  • raising the pedestrian crossing at the slip lane between Boneo Road and McCombe Street
  • changing the timing of the traffic lights at pedestrian crossings at the Point Nepean Road/Boneo Road and Boneo Road/McCombe Street intersections.

Have your say

During August and September 2017, we engaged with community and stakeholders, encouraging them to share their thoughts, ideas and concerns on our proposed plans for Rosebud’s Point Nepean Road and surrounding areas. The feedback we received was largely in support of our proposed safety improvements, especially for reducing the speed down to 50km/h.
