Road Safety in Newstead - Vic Roads public meeting

With Jim Mensforth

Newstead Pavilion, Friday April 24, 2015 at 5 pm.
The series of Rocket Science sessions supported financially by Mount Alexander Shire continues - this is the 8th session and looks at the Road Safety 

Priority ten in the Community Plan was A road safety focus to minimise traffic impacts and create a safe and
quiet township Since Newstead is so dominated by the main roads this very largely becomes a Vic Roads issue.

We have shifted Rocket Science to an unusual time to fit in with this being a Vic Roads public meeting.

Come along and ask questions and be a part of the discussion.

Some possible questions:

  • A safety barrier for pedestrians on the road bridge
  • A pedestrian crossing in the centre of town
  • A less irregular set of speed limits
  • Perhaps flashing lights for the school hours speed zone, there are so many variants of speed zones through here (as mentioned ^) that it is just another confusion.
  • Or perhaps 50 kms right through town (after all - the Steiner School zone is 60...)
  • Maybe 50K speed limit signs with radar detecting and displaying actual speed
