Make walking safer: Community meeting

6.30-8.30pm Tuesday 17 September 2019
At St Ambrose Community Centre, 287 Sydney Road Brunswick

Did you know that Moreland is Melbourne’s second deadliest area for pedestrians? This community meeting will present the evidence and discuss causes, solutions and possible community action.

Expert and community speakers from 7.00pm, followed by discussion. We’ll discuss causes and solutions, and hear from leaders of successful community campaigns.

Andrea Bunting: the statistics
Tim Lecky (traffic planner) and Murray West (urban strategist and traffic engineer). From MCCagney, the consultancy who wrote a background paper including a focus on pedestrians, for the City of Melbourne’s Transport Strategy update in 2018.
Jane Holroyd: Local pedestrian and public transport advocate
Helen McDonald: the Merri Bridge Group successfully campaigned for a foot and bike bridge to link Brunswick and Northcote behind Ceres.
Helen Kratzmann: The group Pedestrian Safety for Nicholson Street Coburg got new lights installed in Nicholson Street Coburg, linking apartments and an IGA with a mosque and houses on the other side. 

Come from 6.30 (or stay after) to record local danger spots and sites for improvement with Brunswick MP Tim Read. And have a cuppa.

Free (donations solicited). All welcome! Inquiries 0421 840 100 or brunswickresidentsnetwork@gmail.com
