Concerned Citizen started this petition to Regional Roads Victoria and

This is a petition against the ludicrous waste of taxpayers money in the form of uninvited, unwarranted and non-requested destruction of Sturt Street in Ballarat by the government, Regional Roads Victoria and Ballarat City Council.

These entities are going ahead with an originally rejected plan for a bicycle path that runs up the middle median of Sturt Street and 'upgrades' of certain intersections along Sturt Street. 

This petition is to bring about a total number of votes to hopefully have this plan cancelled. There are many many posts/comments and reactions to the social media information that these entities have shared to promote this idea, who are share the same concerns as I do. 

I am calling on all concerned citizens of Ballarat to sign and share this petition with the hopes we can have enough community support to cancel these plans and have the wasted taxpayer dollars funded towards more useful community projects, such as; fixing road surfaces (in and around Ballarat), implementing more parking opportunities, lower parking costs, fixing congestion issues, driver education and training, supporting struggling retailers and any other ideas that could be suggested from proper community consultation.

I implore everyone to sign this, leave community project suggestions and write to Juliana Addison in support of cancelling these ridiculous plans. Her email address is: Juliana.Addison@parliament.vic.gov.au

Please don't let your hard earned money go to waste to rip up Sturt Street for a path that will be used for 2 weeks of the year by more than 5 people. How many people will utilise that bike path during the 6-8 months of winter weather Ballarat is renowned for? How many will use it during the 30-40+ degree days we have for the rest of the year?

Now how many people would save money servicing their cars with good roads and no pot holes? How many lives and cars will be saved from proper road surfaces?

Share with your friends and family, they all work hard and deserve to be heard.
