Press Release – SRBA
20th March 2015
The Sydney Road Brunswick Association supports a safe and open environment for all the Community.
We support intelligent, informed long term planning for our business strip, whether our patrons walk, cycle, drive or take public transport.
Our businesses require infrastructure support to encourage locals, visitors and tourists into a safe, accident free environment, no matter what their mode of commute.
Measures must be taken to accommodate the increasing population in the area. Removing carparks from the street will destroy the social and economic benefits to the area and will create a thoroughfare of traffic, increasing dangers to pedestrians, bicycle riders and motorists. It’s our responsibility to support our mix of businesses, many of which rely on free and accessible parking for their patrons who’s only (and/or preferred) option is to drive to Sydney Road.
We acknowledge the efforts of Vic Roads to counteract the higher accident rate through a variety of road implementations and as long-term stakeholders, 24/7, the Association would like to remain informed and included in future plans and discussions.
