15 Jul 2013

Separating cyclists and pedestrians on promenade Image

Action is to be taken in alleviating the dangerous interaction between cyclists and pedestrians along Southbank Promenade.

The City of Melbourne has highlighted the stretch between Southgate and Crown Casino as an issue needing to be addressed as part of its Road Safety Plan 2013-17, presented to the council during July.

The report suggests the need to: “Explore on-road separated bicycle lanes to enable commuter traffic to bypass Southank (promenade), to mitigate pedestrian-cyclist conflict and safety concerns.”

It is listed as a medium priority within the report.

The report also includes safety details from 2007-2011 and showed a number of serious injuries were suffered and there was one fatality were caused by road accidents on the Southbank end of Clarendon St. There were several other serious injuries suffered on St Kilda Rd and City Rd.
