Local traffic management issues in Cremorne: on this weeks summer special, Chris interviews Rick, a civil engineer with 20 years expertise in traffic & transport infrastructure. Rick discusses Cremorne issues with curtailing truck movements, traffic planning, making the area safer for residents, walkers and cyclists.

Rick is critical of City of Yarra not following their own obligations as a road manager or planning scheme advice for residential zones and need for a traffic management strategy to conform to councils own policies to clearly articulate what is required.

Topics include previous Local Area Place Making (LAPM),  new Road Safety Studies, other council strategies for truck movements, especially Maribyrnong CouncilAustroads and VicRoads guidance

Rick is a long term Cremorne resident and a Streets Alive Yarra supporter
