PEDESTRIAN SAFETY IN PRAHRAN

Pedestrian-friendly streets are essential to keep Prahran healthy, liveable and safe – yet across our community pedestrian infrastructure is poor quality or absent entirely.

The results of my Pedestrian Safety Survey have shown that many residents feel unsafe whilst walking and over half experienced or witnessed a near miss. Hotspots include South Yarra station, the intersection of Dandenong Road and Chapel Street and the intersection of Commercial Road and Punt Road.

An overwhelming number of residents want to see more investment in pedestrian safety. That’s why I’m pushing for safer, more family-friendly pedestrian infrastructure like new and upgraded crossings, shared zones, widened footpaths and level-access tram stops.

It is clear our community is concerned about pedestrian safety and it is time governments started listening.

Together, let's send a strong message to the Victorian Government that our community wants action!
