Initiating an investigation about the Nepean Highway in Frankston

July 27 2022

The Road Safety Camera Commissioner, Neville Taylor APM, has initiated an investigation to understand the decisions and processes that were made when implementing the speed limit reduction to 40 km/h along the Nepean Highway that led to speeding infringements being issued to road users.  There have been recent enquiries from members of the public and the media about the changed speed limit from 60 km/h to 40 km/h and the enforcement of this reduced speed by the fixed digital road safety cameras located at the intersection of Nepean Highway and Davey Street, Frankston. 

Mr Taylor informed the Minister for Police, the Hon Anthony Carbines MP, that an investigation will be initiated under the powers accorded to the Commissioner within the Road Safety Camera Commissioner Act 2011.

The Commissioner will seek relevant information and documents from members of the road safety partnership, Frankston City Council, and other stakeholders as part of the investigation.  This investigation will explore several avenues of interest and will report any recommendations back to the Minister.  This may include recommendations regarding the speeding infringements issued.

It is envisaged that the Commissioner will finalise the investigation as soon as practicable, after thoroughly considering all information received, and will communicate any recommendations made on this website.  Members of the public wanting to provide feedback about their experiences driving through the intersection of Nepean Highway and Davey Street, Frankston, can do so by completing the enquiry form.  Members of the public wanting to query their infringements will need to contact Fines Victoria.
