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.
