We’re working on a plan to revitalise Chapel Street and to make it safer for cyclists and pedestrians. If anyone wants to see a draft for comment, please let me know and I’ll send you a copy

The Chapel Street Realisation Project: this week back in the 3CR studio, Chris chats to Matthew Townsend about Safer Cycling for Stonnington about working towards safer and healthier transport, shared spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, and a renaissance of outdoor dining on Stonnington’s streets and what needs to happen to make Chapel Street and Stonnington more attractive and safer for active transport.

Local news includes Ben Carrols announcement on twitter about a pop-up bike route along Heidelberg Road from Fairfield to Collingwood, heads up via Brompton Junction about Yarra City Council works at Canning Street and Richardson Street in Carlton North, VicRoads: Hawthorn Bridge temporary scaffolding works – notification of minor detour to pedestrians and bicycle riders from Yarra Boulevard to Main Yarra Trail,Yarra Valley Water Works: Fairfield Pipe Bridge closure from 9am-3pm from 23-27 November for safety improvement works and College Street Cycleway returns in Sydney.

Four delivery riders have died in three monthson Sydneys roads (now FIVE deaths as of Monday afternoon) which shows how ‘gig economy’ companies have failed to provide adequate training, wages and a safe working environment.
