Elmore residents campaigning for a pedestrian crossing on Elmore’s main street handed over seven petitions containing thousands of signatures to the City of Greater Bendigo last week.
Bendigo mayor Lisa Ruffell visited Elmore yesterday to investigate the need for a crossing.
Mrs Ruffell said she would be ‘‘removing all stops’’ to make sure residents had a pedestrian crossing.
Whipstick Ward councillor James Williams said it was a busy road and understood the residents’ concerns.
He said he was willing to listen to these concerns and would take the issue to the board.
He said consultation with VicRoads would be the next step and negotiations may take some time.
Mrs Ruffell said the cost and how much the crossing would be used would be factors in the decision but believed it was important due to the post office being on the other side of the road from the bulk of the town’s shops.
