The Safer Residential Areas project focuses on improving road safety on local streets throughout the Shire by analysing crash statistics and speed data.

The Mornington Peninsula is a Towards Zero municipality and is committed to creating a safe road system including safer roads and roadsides, safer vehicles, safer road users and safer speeds.

Rosebud is one of three areas (Hastings & Dromana) on the Mornington Peninsula prioritised for the local area traffic management works.

An extensive community consultation process was carried out in early 2018 to seek feedback from local stakeholders.

The works in Rosebud include raised safety platforms, splitter islands, pedestrian crossings, safer speeds and a raised intersection.

Rosebud has been selected as the first township to receive 40km/h speed limits across 24 residential streets with signage being installed during June/July 2020. This area-wide approach to road safety was well received during the community consultation period and aims to reduce the number of cars using these residential streets as a thoroughfare during peak season, as well as to achieve safer speeds.

The majority of works in Rosebud have now been completed, with the McCombe Street raised intersection due to be finished in early July 2020.
