Update on Traffic Management at Station Pier

We have recently received the following information from the City of Port Phillip (CoPP) which you may find of interest.

The extended traffic management plan (TMP) to be implemented at the Waterfront Place, Princes Street and Beach Street roundabout to include traffic controllers is part of a trial. This will be implemented on cruise ship turnaround visits that coincide with a double sailing by TT- Line between 5:30 am to 9 am on single-double and 6:30 am to 9:30 am on double-double sailing days.

Although, Council is aware queueing occurs during some evening periods on cruise shipping days, Council has identified the morning peak period to be the critical period. 

Existing signage along Todd Road for vehicles travelling southbound towards Williamstown Road advises drivers to turn left onto Williamstown Road as continuing along Todd Road is for LOCAL ACCESS ONY. The preferred route for trucks is Todd Road – Williamstown Road – Graham Street – Bay Street – Beach Street.

On critical cruise shipping days in December 2018 and January 2019, as part of the extended TMP, Variable Message Signs (VMS) trailers will be temporarily installed proximate to:
  • The intersection of Todd Road and Williamstown Road, Port Melbourne and
  • The intersection Rouse Street and Bay Street, Port Melbourne.
VMS will advise drivers, trucks can only access Waterfront Place from Beach Street via Bay Street. The effectiveness of the trail will be monitored during and after the 2018/19 shipping season.
