Improving pedestrian and cycling safety on one of Williamstown's most important streets

Council is looking at improving pedestrian and cycling safety in Victoria Street, Williamstown to respond to safety issues and a history of crashes within the street.

Victoria Street is a major cycling connection linking several important destinations in Williamstown. This north-south corridor links the Williamstown North train station with the Hobsons Bay Coastal Trail and Williamstown Beach. In an east-west direction, it is an important connection between the residential section of Williamstown and the two secondary schools within the suburb, seeing a large number of school children crossing this busy street.

In 2019, Council commissioned a report to identify transport and safety issues in Victoria Street and to proposed traffic treatments to address these issues. You can read this report and the findings here.

Council is now seeking community feedback on these issues and the proposed traffic treatments prior to implementation. This project has received funding from the Transport Action Commission (TAC) to assist in the implementation of these traffic treatments. You can view the concept plans to improve pedestrian and cycling safety in Victoria Street here.
