Bayside Council Vote – your support is needed

Home / Cycle Safety / Bayside Council Vote – your support is needed

As you would be aware, City of Port Philip and Kingston have already commenced the 12 month trial of ‘No Stopping’ zones along Beach Rd as a measure to increase cyclist safety.

Bayside council is having a meeting tomorrow night at which there is a proposal that they too join these other councils and approve a trial for a ‘No Stopping’ zone along Route 33 (Beach Rd). There is a group of residents who are highly organised, highly vocal and highly against this ‘No Stopping’ zone so we need to get a large number of supporters of the ‘No Stopping’ zone to attend and speak in favour of the proposal.

You can speak for 3 minutes but something as simple as “I support the recommendation and urge council to proceed with the trial” would be fine too! Please follow the link below to register your request to be heard. This has to be done by 11:00am Tuesday 31st…. so don’t delay – do it now while you remember!!

Once here, you need to enter your name and other details – for the “in relation to Item No” field, please put item number 10.2;  for the “in relation to” description field, please put ‘Route 33 Beach Rd No Stopping Zone’. 

Remember, I can’t benefit from this important safety measure – if you want it, turn up and speak in support of it!
