Traffic Management in Beacon Cove During Cruise Ship Visits

During the 2018/19 cruise ship season, the City of Port Phillip’s (CoPP) Transport Safety Engineering team worked with VicPorts to trial an extended Traffic Management Plan (TMP). This was implemented on 25 critical cruise shipping days. The TMP included traffic controllers stationed at the Beach Street, Princes Street and Waterfront Place roundabout. The program was considered a success.

The program is designed to:
  • Improve the operation of the queuing lane and the Princes Street, Waterfront Place and Beach Street roundabout.
  • Prevent truck access into Waterfront Place from Princes Street and Beach Street (from Beacon Road/The Boulevard approach).
  • Improve safety and operation of the roundabout.
  • Reduce truck volumes in Princes Street and other local roads.
This year, CoPP officers have liaised with VicPorts and TT-Line who have agreed to implement the extended TMP on 56 days during the 2019/20 cruise ship season. The season commenced on Sunday 13 October 2019.

CoPP officers will continue work with VicPorts during the cruise shipping to monitor and review the TMP. The dates the extended TMP are to be implemented are available on the Council’s website.

Out There Sailing

With the assistance from Australian Sailing, the Port Melbourne Yacht Club (PMYC) will be running a short Out There Sailing program that offers an opportunity for teenagers to experience sailing while having fun with friends and to learn skills that will help them now and in the future.

The program is aimed at 12-17 year olds who would like to try sailing, windsurfing and/or paddle boarding and will be conducted with trained instructors on specific Saturdays throughout the summer season. Anyone can get involved, whether they have sailed before or not.

The teenagers don’t have to be a member of PMYC and don’t need to own a boat. All sailing equipment will be provided for them at the Club.

Anyone interested should go to the PMYC website or give Paul Leitinger a call on 0401 992 000.

Have Your Say on Council's Draft Parking Management Policy Before 3 November

Sorry for the very late notice but this has only come to my attention.

Community consultation on the draft Parking Management Policy closes on Sunday 3 November 2019 and the City of Port Phillip (CoPP) is keen to receive your feedback.

You can “Have Your Say” on the draft Parking Management Policy by attending a workshop at 10am on Wednesday 30 October 2019 or via their online survey. The survey will be open until Sunday 3 November 2019.

The draft Policy has been informed by more than four years of consultation with the community and this current engagement is a critical step to test the proposed changes with the community.

A quick look at the new policy suggests that significant changes are proposed for resident, visitor, and other local parking pemits. So if you use or rely on one of these in the CoPP then the new policy is likely to impact you.

Visit haveyoursay.portphillip.vic.gov.au to view the draft Policy, register for a workshop or to complete the survey.
