Beach Street Queuing Lane Update

The City of Port Phillip (CoPP) is about to commence construction of the Beach Street Separated Queuing Lane. Works have been delayed to accommodate the cruise shipping season, which has now finished for winter.

Works on the queuing lane will commence on 30 May 2017 and are scheduled for completion by the end of August 2017 weather permitting.

The scope of works include:
  • creating a Station Pier lane along Beach Street, from Bay Street to the roundabout that will separate queuing traffic at cruise ship times
  • the works will be contained within the existing road space. Angle parking on foreshore side of Beach Street will be reconfigured to parallel parking to make room for the Station Pier lane
  • adding a lane to the roundabout to create a lane that goes straight through to Station Pier along with a right turn lane, effectively removing congestion from the roundabout
  • creating an on-road bike lane in both directions on Beach Street, between Bay Street and the roundabout
Works will be undertaken on weekdays between the hours of 7am and 5pm. Noise will be kept to a minimum and no weekend works are scheduled at this stage.

As part of the works, three light poles will be replaced along Beach Street. CitiPower has advised there will not be any disruptions to your power and temporary lighting will be installed during the replacement works.
