The Andrews Labor Government has delivered on its commitment to boost pedestrian safety in Romsey, with a new pedestrian crossing switched on today.

Member for Macedon, Mary-Anne Thomas welcomed the new crossing on Main Street/Melbourne-Lancefield Road in Romsey, which will make it safer for people to move around the community.

The $300,000 project, which has incorporated pedestrian operated signals, provides a safer location for people to cross Main Street, particularly students making their way to school and local sporting areas.

Main Street is one of the small community’s busiest roads in a growing area, and local residents were included in the development of the project to ensure the location of the crossing would best meet the needs of the community.
