Proposed speed limit reductions

Submissions close at 04:00PM on Friday, 28 June 2019

Council is proposing speed limit reductions on nine roads across the Yarra Ranges, in response to resident concerns about safety.

The proposal follows residents contacting Council with concerns about speed limits on their roads.

As a result, Council is advocating to VicRoads on the community’s behalf, to lower these speed limits.

Roads with proposed speed limit reductions include:

  • Old Healesville Road, Yarra Glen and Healesville
    Proposal to reduce speed limit from 100km/h to 80km/h 100m east of  Chocolaterie (existing 80km/hr) to 400m east of Bleases Lane, and between School Lane and Healesville-Yarra Glen Road
  • Lauriston Drive, Coldstream
    Proposal to reduce speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h between Kilara Road and Ingram Road
  • Station Street, Coldstream
    Proposal to reduce speed limit from 70km/h to 50km/h between Maroondah Hwy and Coldstream West Rd
  • Lilydale Road, Healesville
    Proposal to reduce speed limit from 60km/h to 50km/h between Maroondah Highway and Healesville Kinglake Road
  • Liverpool Road, Kilsyth
    Proposal to reduce speed limit from 80km/h to 70km/h North of the Kilsyth South Baptist Church
  • Glenfern Road, Upper Ferntree Gully 
    Proposal to reduce speed limit from 80km/h to 70km/h from property #215 to property #155 

Residents on the proposed roads have been sent letters, outlining the proposal and asking for their feedback.

Yarra Ranges residents and visitors are also encouraged to share their thoughts through the form below before the survey closes at 4pm on Friday, 28 June.

Following consultation with the community, VicRoads will consider information, including the number of recorded road crashes, the environment, volume of traffic, driveways and intersecting roads before reaching a decision.
