Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (Question 6534) My constituency question is to the Minister for Public Transport. A number of residents have contacted me regarding the issue of cars failing to stop for trams at tram stops, with the stop at the corner of Toorak Road and Chapel Street eastbound being of particular concern. 

This intersection is particularly problematic because Toorak Road, which is mainly four lanes, flares into a fifth lane eastbound at the tram stop. This requires commuters to cross two lanes to reach the tram, with drivers often being unaware of the tram stop and the passengers getting on and off the tram. My concern is that this is a serious accident waiting to happen. Can the minister advise if Public Transport Victoria is investigating this dangerous tram stop and what options are available to make it safer?
