Mr HIBBINS (Prahran) — (13 069) My constituency question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety, and I ask: what is the latest information on the St Kilda Road safety improvement study? With spring arriving and the sun coming out more and more people will be riding their bikes, St Kilda Road is one of our most popular routes, but also one of the most dangerous.

There has been little news on the progress of installing separated bike lanes along St Kilda Road. The last time I asked the minister stated that the next round of community consultation will commence in April 2017, and the study, including community consultation, preparation of concept designs, traffic modelling and detailed project cost estimations, is expected to be completed by mid-2017. This has not occurred. This project seems to be stuck in development hell, with delay after delay and promised deadlines missed. I urge the minister to share the latest results of the study with the public, have a genuine consultation with the community and get on with the job of installing separated bike lanes along St Kilda Road.

Answer:  

VicRoads has continued to work with key stakeholders, including the cities of Port Phillip and Melbourne, Transport Accident Commission, Active Transport Victoria and Melbourne Metro Rail Authority. The study is complete and is currently being considered for funding.

A robust consultation process has been developed as part of the study. It is important to take an integrated approach with the plans relating to Melbourne Metro Tunnel's Domain Station works, and to time the consultation and works to adopt a whole of corridor approach.
