Reduce the speed limit to 40kms on Nicholson St

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

For safety's sake, we call upon the State Government of Victoria to reduce the speed limit on Nicholson Street to 40 kms. 

The Petition of residents, traders and customers of the Nicholson St Village, North Fitzroy and North Carlton, Victoria draws to the attention of the House to the ongoing disruption of Nicholson St Village by road works, tramways works and the building of apartment blocks leading to the detriment of trade in the street and the consequent degradation of a significant local amenity.

The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria legislate a reduced speed limit to 40 kph in the Village precinct, consistent with VicRoads’ ‘SmartRoads hierarchy’ and  also legislate  single lane traffic in the precinct, in order to facilitate street car parking, and assist in the community revitalization of the strip shopping centre.
