Intersection upgrade

29 May 2012

Docklands’ dangerous intersection of the corner of Bourke St and Harbour Esplanade is to get an upgrade to protect pedestrians.

Places Victoria’s Docklands manager Simon Wilson says a traffic island is to be installed to help define the actual roadway for motorists turning right out of Bourke St heading north along Harbour Esplanade.

Mr Wilson said: “Places Victoria has been working with VicRoads, the City of Melbourne, and Bicycle Victoria to improve safety for cyclists at the intersection of Harbour Esplanade and Bourke St.”

“Subject to VicRoads’ approval, works to create a traffic island and changes to signalisation will occur within the next few months. These works are designed to more clearly define the path of travel for motorists.”

In February Docklands News highlighted the danger to pedestrians waiting to cross Harbour Esplanade – reporting that drivers often mistook the bicycle path for the road.

At the time, local worker Fran Welsh said she was surprised that no one has yet been killed or seriously injured due to the confusion of drivers.
