Restrict the following roads:

Beach street (from Bay Street to Beaconsfield Parade)

Beaconsfield Parade (from Beach Street to Jacka Boulevard)

Jacka Boulevard (from Beaconsfield Parade to Marine Parade)

Marine Parade (from Jacka Boulevard to Ormond Esplanade)

Ormond Esplanade (from Marine Parade to St Kilda Street)

St Kilda Street (from Ormond Esplanade to Esplanade)

Esplanade (from St Kilda Street to Beach Road)

Beach Road (from Esplanade to Nepean Highway)

Truck curfews placed on Beach Road due to concerns regarding amenity raised by communities and local councils along the corridor. As part of the proposal an extensive communications and engagement campaign targeting the community and industry has been taken.

The survey results indicated that a significant number of business owners who responded were not highly impacted by the current truck curfews.

Beach Road also provides access to many places including St Kilda foreshore area which serves as a major attraction for tourists and community (particularly during warmer months). The curfew restrictions will increase the amenity along the beach road and improve the traffic flow.

VicRoads will monitor and review changes induced by the curfew and will optimise traffic signals to improve movement along Nepean Highway.
