Resident of many years believes Maquarie St and Vernon Tce have become dangerous streets

Submitted by TPA Editor on Wed, 16/04/2014 - 6:39pm

30 kph and several pedestrian crossings would do so much for the area. The current limit is 50 kph and there are no crossings from Commercial Rd all the way into New Farm. I am aware that Macquarie and Vernon form part of a bus route, however the roads are of a similar width to Lamington St (and others nearby) where the limit is only 20 kph. Macquarie and Vernon also now have far more pedestrians crossing back and forth to enter/leave residential buildings, cafes, bars and restaurants throughout the day and in the evenings.

The attached letter from the Council sets out the proposed response, which is to undertake more research and analysis, as you can read.
