The Department of Transport has advised interim treatments to improve pedestrian safety and traffic flows at the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout in Rosebud.

Works are expected to begin in early November 2022 and be complete in February 2023, weather permitting.

The following interim treatments will be delivered at the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout:

  • A new signalised pedestrian crossings on the west side of the southern Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Jetty Road roundabout
  • Roundabout metering at selected entrances of the roundabout to manage traffic flow during peak times
  • A shared user path on the north bound side of Jetty Road via the new pedestrian crossings to provide a safe passage for cyclists and pedestrians through the roundabout
  • Widening of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at the western leg of the southern roundabout to extend the turning and merging lanes
  • New lighting on the western leg of the southern roundabout to accommodate the lane extensions
  • Installation of CCTV at the southern roundabout to monitor traffic and adjust metering as necessary. 

Crews will be working gradually to complete works at each leg of the roundabout.

Work will be undertaken on the westbound lanes between 9am and 5pm and on the eastbound lanes between 7am and 3pm to minimise congestion

Crews will be on site Monday to Saturday, excluding public holidays and long weekends.

During works, there may be delays for motorists of up to 10 minutes. Please plan ahead and allow extra time when travelling through the area.

Golf links Road Upgrade

Major Projects Victoria is starting works on the Golf Links Road on 12 October. The first stage of works includes a 12 week closure of Golf Links Road from Peninsula Link to the McClelland Drive roundabout.  

The upgrade aims to make it easier and safer to get to Peninsula Link, Somerville, Hastings and the Western Port Highway. It will also make it easier and safer for trucks to get to Grant Road and the Somerville commercial precinct. Safety barriers will lower the risk and severity of crashes.

Installation of linking footpath and a pedestrian refuge island Frankston-Flinders Road, Somerville

The Shire has been made aware of missing footpaths and safe crossing opportunities close to 1190 Frankston-Flinders Road in Somerville. The Shire will therefore install a footpath along with a pedestrian refuge island.

The Shire is initiating this project to address a key safety issue raised by members of the community and to provide improved connectivity for the existing pedestrian network. The whole project is scheduled to be delivered by June 2021.
