Signals works


MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire will soon begin erecting traffic signals at the corner of McDowell St and Jetty Rd, Rosebud.

The intersection has received Black Spot funding after three serious injury crashes over the past five years.

The signals and usual traffic management works will allow for safer turning movements and make it easier for pedestrians to access local shops, primary school, Centrelink office and Centro Rosebud shopping centre.

But parking will be affected by VicRoads works and No-standing areas will be enforced on McDowell St from Jetty Rd to about 60 metres west of Jetty Rd.

A No-standing area will be enforced on the eastern side of Jetty Rd at the front of the Centrelink office to McDowell St. The disabled car space adjacent to the Centrelink office will be moved north.

The disabled car space on the west side of Jetty Rd, near the existing school crossing, will be removed. Two alternative disabled car spaces on McDowell St include accessibility features, such as pram ramps, to make it easier to get onto the footpath.

New signs will advise drivers of the changes, with the shire aiming to minimise disruption to traders, drivers and pedestrians. The works are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
