Changes to clearways in Port Phillip

The Department of Transport is introducing changes to clearways across Melbourne to keep traffic flowing smoothly on Melbourne’s busy roads as part of the Clearways Management Program.

From the 1 December 2020, tow away conditions will be added to four existing clearways in the City of Port Phillip. These include:

  • Kings Way
  • Queens Road
  • Brighton Road
  • Marine Parade/Ormonde Esplanade.

The additional tow-away condition will ensure a better flow of traffic during clearway times on arterial roads, so residents and visitors can travel more freely as our City opens up.

This will also bring these roads in line with the 12 other clearways in the municipality that already have tow-away conditions.
