Mornington Main Street closure

Mornington Peninsula Shire has opened up part of Main Street, Mornington to pedestrians and bike riders and closed it to cars.

Main Street, between Barkley Street and the Esplanade, has been closed to cars and opened to pedestrians to support outdoor dining.

Traffic is being diverted around the ring roads to the car parks either side of Main Street, with disabled parking and bus stops relocated to the closest suitable locations.

The map below shows the new location of disabled parking and bus stops, as well as loading zones and the taxi zone.
