Proposed Trial: Beach & Princes Streets & Waterfront Place Roundabout

The City of Port Phillip (CoPP) is planning to introduce a left-turn only barrier at this roundabout for traffic entering the roundabout from Princes Street. This and other improvements is in response to residents’ concerns about the congestion that often occurs at this roundabout when large vehicles attempt to turn right from Princess Street or Beach Street into Waterfront Place. The improvements will be trialled over 12-months during the 2018-19 cruise ship season. The change will commence in September 2018.

The CoPP has notified some nearby residents but not all who will be affected. Residents have until Monday, 26 June 2018 to comment on the proposal.  Details of the proposal can be accessed here.  Further information can be obtained by emailing transport@portphillip.vic.gov.au or by ringing 9209 6777.

The BCNA has asked that the consultation period to be extended given that many nearby residents have not been notified.
