Ivanhoe and Heidelberg Shopping Centre Speed Limits Petition

To the Legislative Assembly of Victoria:

This petition of certain citizens of the state of Victoria draws to the attention of the house the need for the state government to implement 40-kilometre-per-hour speed zones in the key shopping centre locations of Upper Heidelberg Road in Ivanhoe, Lower Heidelberg Road in Ivanhoe East and Burgundy Street in Heidelberg.

In particular, we note:

1. government cuts to VicRoads means that no 40-kilometre speed zones are being funded in our area;

2. these key shopping strips are under constant local traffic pressure and 40-kilometre speed zones are vital to pedestrian safety.

The petitioners request that the Legislative Assembly of Victoria urge the state government to deliver this much-needed local safety measure.
By Mr CARBINES (Ivanhoe) (167 signatures).
