The City of Melbourne is undertaking a study to identify a range of pedestrian and road safety improvement projects which could be constructed in East Melbourne and Jolimont. This follows the recent implementation of a 40km/h speed limit on local roads in the neighbourhood.

The investigation has been undertaken by transport engineering consultants at Movendo and has included a review of 10 years of community submissions and an analysis of pedestrian volumes, vehicles speed and volume data and crash statistics between 2014 and 2019.

So far in the study we have identified a list of potential pedestrian and road safety improvement projects with high level concept plans and cost estimates, and developed an implementation plan.

Projects will be staged over the next three years for implementation based on funding availability, community preference, along with expert advice and cost effectiveness. Funding has been allocated this financial year to commence some priority projects.
