The Darebin Divider: Keep St Georges Rd accessible

This petition had 804 supporters

We the undersigned hereby petition the Federal and State Governments and the Mayor and Councillors of Darebin City Council against the permanent closures of the minor crossings between Separation Street and Normanby Avenue on St Georges Road.

● The temporary closure of these crossings has already had a huge impact on traffic congestion at main intersections as drivers are blocking through traffic waiting to make u-turns and increasing the number of cars driving through school and park zones in residential streets.
● Increased traffic on Woolhouse St and Leinster Grv is impacting accessibility for the school buses to Croxton Specialist School. This in turn makes it more difficult for parents to drop and pick up their children from CSS.
● Local businesses are experiencing loss of customers due to the increased difficulty in travelling from one side of the road to the other. This impacts profits which can have dire consequences for small businesses
● Should small businesses be forced to close due to impacts on profits, it will have a significant impact on the culture of the area.

We ask that instead of the crossings being closed permanently, other safety measures are explored to keep pedestrians, cyclists and drivers safe with minimal impact on the local area.
