Thank you to everyone who attended the Keilor Road/Newman Street/Grange Road community meeting on Monday, 26 October 2015.
The event was well attended with around 80 people joining Council officers, VicRoads’ representatives and the Member for Niddrie Ben Carroll.
We are pleased that there finally appears to be some movement on possible safety improvements to these busy intersections. We have been advocating to the government for some time for practical solutions to be undertaken and even though it is a VicRoads’ road we have even gone to the extent of undertaking our own traffic studies to highlight the need for improvements.
We are open to considering all possible safety improvement options providing they take into account all modes of transport, including buses, cars, bicycles and pedestrians and adequately address safety concerns.
VicRoads is currently collating the feedback from the meeting and we look forward to seeing the results and continuing to play a constructive role in helping improve road safety in this busy location.
