Letters to the Editor - August 2011

02 Aug 2011

Councillor Peter Clarke’s appointment as chairman of the new Urban Renewal Authority is a good move.

His first decision should be to sack the person at VicUrban who was responsible for reducing Harbour Esplanade from two lanes each way to one lane each way.

It has created huge traffic problems for Docklands.

With the Government intending to develop E-Gate and Fisherman’s Bend, the extra traffic this will bring to Docklands will be massive.

Wurundjeri Way is already gridlocked at peak hour and will need to be four lanes each way. But buildings are being built too close to Wurundjeri Way to allow for the road’s expansion.

The Lorimer St turnoff already gets backed up at peak hour. Imagine what it will be like in the future with extra traffic going to Fisherman’s Bend.

Bourke St should have been extended from the CBD as Collins Street was. Bourke St in Docklands is a car park that goes nowhere and it will get worse.

Thanks VicUrban.
