Time to talk traffic!

11 May 2017

Time to talk traffic! Image

Southbank Local News and the Montague Community Alliance (MCA) will host a free community forum on May 16 to discuss current and future traffic flows in the Montague Precinct.

An expert panel of five, featuring Member for Albert Park and Minister for Housing, Disability and Ageing, Mental Health, Equality and the Creative Industries Martin Foley (pictured with Trisha Avery), has been confirmed to lead the forum.

The May 16 forum, to be held at the Golden Fleece Hotel (cnr of Montague and Buckhurst streets) at 6pm for a 6.15pm start, will be the first of three forums for the year focused on issues affecting the Montague Precinct. Joining Martin Foley on the forum panel will be:

  • Port Phillip Mayor Bernadene Voss;
  • Chair of the Fishermans Bend Ministerial Advisory Committee Meredith Sussex;
  • South Melbourne Primary School inaugural principal Noel Creece; and
  • VicRoads director of transport and planning David Teague.

Panelists will each be given five minutes to present before the forum is thrown to question and answer, where the audience will be encouraged to participate in the discussion. MCA convener Trisha Avery will moderate the forum, which will be scheduled to conclude at 7.45pm.

The first of the five precincts in Fishermans Bend to undergo urban renewal, Montague is the subject of major development with construction of apartments and a school already underway. With many more apartment towers and a new park on the way, it is hoped the forum will help lead to a transitional plan devised between authorities and locals on managing traffic and community safety.

Discussion topics for the other two forums, which are expected to be held in August and November, will be announced in Southbank Local News closer to the meeting dates.

The forums are set to prompt important discussions about the future redevelopment of Fishermans Bend and are not to be missed!
