Sydney Road, Brunswick, cyclist safety
To the Legislative Assembly of Victoria:
Various stakeholders and cycling groups have been proposing and lobbying for extreme changes to be made in infrastructure, for the safer sharing of Sydney Road. Whilst we agree with a safer road for all, we feel these changes will have an immediate, profound impact, detrimental to the businesses and the long-term viability of this shopping strip.
We would like to halt any proposals, particularly in removing any on-street car parking, until all major stakeholders are consulted appropriately, with impacts recognised and all alternatives rationally considered.
To ensure a thriving and accessible shopping strip, we do not agree with removing car parking from the main street of Sydney Road, Brunswick, because we believe it will have a negative impact on the business community.
