Constituency question: Pedestrian crossing Alma Road
My question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask: will the minister fix the pedestrian crossing on the intersection of Alma Road and Westbury Street in St Kilda East to ensure that it makes a sound and vibrates so people who are visually impaired can safely cross the road? I am advised that currently the crossing has no sound or vibrations despite this issue having been raised numerous times at various levels of government. The crossing itself is near a playground at Alma Park, a busy road, a local cafe and a kinder and is a recommended school crossing. This issue has been raised by local resident Jessie T, who has started a change.org petition which currently has over 300 signatures. I urge the state government to fix this crossing to ensure all people can safely cross the road.
