Rosstown Rail Trail improvements

We are improving and extending the Rosstown Rail Trail to make the route safer for people riding bikes and walking.

The Rosstown Rail Trail runs for approximately 7.4 kilometres and follows the route of the former Rosstown Railway Line, from Elsternwick to Hughesdale.

Delivery to date

Over 2023 and 2024, we made improvements along Riddell Parade, Clarence Street, Aileen Avenue, Dover Street and Oakleigh Road. The works included:

  • putting up new and clearer signage
  • painting sharrows and bike stencils
  • installing traffic calming devices.

These improvements help:

  • people navigate the trail
  • raise awareness among drivers about sharing the road with bike riders
  • reduce traffic speeds, making it safer for everyone.

Next phase

In the 2024/25 financial year, we will plan and deliver further improvements along the Trail east of Oakleigh Road. We will consult with residents in late 2024.

If you have any questions or comments, please email or call 9524 3333 to speak with one of our transport planners or traffic engineers.
