Elmore residents are appealing to VicRoads to look at a pedestrian crossing in the town.August 19, 2014 3:16am
Elmore residents continue to petition VicRoads for its own pedestrian crossing.
Member for Rodney Paul Weller has backed a community campaign by the Elmore Progress Association to have a pedestrian crossing installed in the town’s central business district.
More than 500 residents have signed a petition supporting the construction of a pedestrian crossing on the Northern Hwy at Railway Place, Elmore.
The campaign has been supported by local organisations and community groups, including Elmore Primary Health Services, Elmore Pre-school, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Primary School, Elmore Senior Citizens Club, Elmore Lions Club and the Campaspe Run Elmore Rural Discovery Centre.
Mr Weller last week presented the petitions and letters of support to the Victorian Roads Minister Terry Mulder, urging the minister to listen to the voice of the people.
‘‘I completely support the efforts of the Elmore community to secure a pedestrian crossing on the Northern Hwy in Elmore,’’ he said.
Mr Weller said the people of Elmore felt strongly that the installation of a pedestrian crossing was absolutely necessary to prevent the almost inevitable loss of life of a pedestrian attempting to cross the highway.
‘‘I have urged the minister to give this petition the very serious consideration it deserves with a view to taking appropriate measures to install a pedestrian crossing as soon as possible,’’ he said.
