Main Street Traffic

23 May 2018

Mr MORRIS (Mornington) (12:03:55) — (14 415) My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety.

 

In August 2017 I asked the minister in this house to provide traffic counts for Main Street in Mornington. He responded in October that the average daily two-way count was approximately 14 689 cars.

The minister also indicated that VicRoads was investigating potential works to improve pedestrian safety in the southern section of the street and that the improvement was expected to be the provision of an additional pedestrian refuge island. While I appreciate that any works will be an improvement given the volume of traffic, I am not sure this is going to help much.

 

This is a problem that is not going away.

 

So I ask: on what date or dates was the traffic count undertaken, and was a further traffic count conducted since the original question was asked? If so, when was that further count undertaken and what was the result, and what is the practical maximum daily two-way traffic capacity for Main Street?
