Thank you to everyone who participated in our online community engagement. The feedback tools on the page are now closed, but you can still explore the map to see what people said.

Thanks to a recent $3.2 million Victorian Government funding announcement, we’re looking towards the future of Phillip Island Road and how we can make traffic flow more safely and effectively now and into the future. This planning will be aligned with the Phillip Island Integrated Transport Study vision and is an extension of the first stage of planning which included dual lane roundabouts at Back Beach Road, Woolamai Beach Road and the Newhaven area.

Next steps:

  • We’re reviewing all your feedback
  • Once a summary is available, we'll provide you with an update.
  • We will develop project options based on the feedback we’ve received.
  • There will be additional opportunities to participate/engage with this project as it progresses over coming years.

    The Victorian Government has committed $3.2 million for the planning of future infrastructure improvements on Phillip Island Road to better understand future transport needs.

    Phillip Island, including San Remo, is one of Victoria's premiere tourist destinations, attracting more than 1.8 million people each year which could reach up to 3.5 million people a year by 2035.

    This significant number of visitors puts pressure on the island's road network and causes it to reach capacity, with tourists and residents often finding it difficult to access and move around on the island.

    Long-term planning for improvements to the road network is crucial to the island's future and its status as a tourist destination. This planning will be aligned with the Phillip Island Integrated Transport Study vision and is an extension of the first stage of planning which included dual lane roundabouts at Back Beach Road, Woolamai Beach Road and the Newhaven area.
