City Rd death trap

Hi Sean,

I have lived in an apartment above the Mantra Hotel, in City Rd, Southbank, for over 10 years.

During that time, I have witnessed dozens of drivers running through red lights at the pedestrian crossing outside our building and was nearly run down on the crossing once, myself, by an inattentive driver.

I only avoided it because I know the risks and was on the look-out. Other residents report the same problem.

On several occasions, I’ve reported the situation to the police, VicRoads, Melbourne City Council, the Minister for Transport and the Premier, without meaningful action.

I feel it is only a matter of time before an unsuspecting visitor to Southbank is run down and injured or killed.

Here’s a link to a video I took of today’s [October 19’s] exciting episode ...

Sincerely,

Bill Thompson
