Speed limit changes in Sorrento

Published on 09 December 2021


We announced in June we’d received $2.5 million funding from the State Government for improved traffic management and necessary road upgrades in the vicinity of the ferry terminal.
We’re pleased to say we’ve had approval from the Department of Transport to reduce the speed limit to 40km/h at Ocean Beach Road and surrounding areas.
Work to change the speed limit signage will start on Monday 13 December and will be of minimal disruption to traffic. Work will take up to seven days to complete.
We’re working in collaboration with Searoad Ferries, the Department of Transport (VicRoads) and the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions to deliver these road safety upgrades.

Other works are due to begin in autumn 2022 and include:

  • Construction of a roundabout at Point Nepean Road and Hotham Road, Sorrento.
  • Upgrades to Hotham Road between The Esplanade and Point Nepean Road.

Quote attributable to Mayor Councillor Anthony Marsh:
“Keeping our community safe in high traffic areas is essential, particularly during the peak season. This funding will ensure these residential areas are kept free from higher speed traffic.”
Quotes attributable to Nepean Ward Councillors Susan Bissinger and Sarah Race:
“The reduction in speed limit will only improve the area for both residents and visitors. We’d like to thank the Chamber of Commerce for supporting these changes.”
