Capel Sound: Broadway Road Upgrade

  • Project typeRoads, Streetscapes & Footpaths

Mornington Peninsula Shire is progressing the development of a road upgrade project for Broadway in Capel Sound.

Ongoing concerns have been raised about drainage, the condition of the road and well as the continued increase of usage of Broadway as an alternative to Point Nepean Road. The Shire has investigated these concerns and considered these factors. As a result, Broadway, between Truemans Road and Elizabeth Avenue has been identified as a high priority site for upgrade under the Roads to Recovery Program.

The following works are proposed to assist with the upgrade of Broadway Road.

  • Rehabilitation and upgrade of the existing roadway, including the construction of kerb and channel
  • Installation of appropriate drainage to address the ongoing drainage issues
  • Upgrade of bus stop facilities including indented bus pull over areas and formalised waiting areas
  • Construction of a footpath along Broadway to connect into existing footpaths on Truemans Road and Elizabeth Avenue. The path has been designed to be on the southern side of the road between Elizabeth Avenue and Vale Street with the path to then cross the road via a pedestrian crossing to be on the north side from Vale Street to Truemans Road
  • A pedestrian refuge crossing immediately east of Eliza Street
  • Construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Truemans Road and Broadway
  • Implementation of traffic calming along the length of Broadway to replace existing speed humps

Earlier this year, the Shire sought feedback from adjacent residents on the proposed works and have since developed a concept plan for the project. A copy of the design is available for download at the following link - Broadway-Capel-Sound-Road-and-Drainage-Upgrade-Concept-Plan.pdf(PDF, 2MB)

The Shire’s Project Delivery Team will be progressing the detailed design for the project over the next year. Following the completion of the design we aim to commence construction from 2022 onwards.

Update: December 2020
