Ban large trucks from Glen Huntly Rd Elsternwick

Every day Elsternwick's Glen Huntly Road 'Elsternwick Village' shopping strip struggles to deal with the amount of LARGE trucks that use the street as a transport thoroughfare.
Every hour, large trucks roar up the street - trucks that are TOO BIG for this small shopping strip, which is already congested and used by cars, trams, buses, cyclists and pedestrians. Often it's double loaders - large trucks with a driver cabin plus a front load and a back load, such as the one shown in the photo on this page.
Why aren't these large trucks using nearby North Road instead - a road that has recently been upgraded and is much better able to handle large trucks?
Traders say they have been trying to get Council and state government to do something about these trucks for ages - but nothing ever happens.
Just before Christmas, an awful tragedy finally happened. Read all about it in The Age here: http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/woman-struck-and-killed-by-truck-in-elsternwick-20171219-h074dn.html
We call upon City of Glen Eira to help us to lobby State Roads Minister, Luke Donellan, and local MP David Southwick, to get large trucks out of Glen Huntly Road, away from the shops, pedestrians, the families, the school students and the elderly who use this road every day.
