Dandenong Rd crossingLocal residents are petitioning the Minister for Roads and Road Safety to save the Hornby St/Dandenong Rd crossover from permanent closure.

Yarra Trams have stated that the closure is a direct result of several incidents and a very poor safety record.  However with no obvious safety improvements, notification, consultation with, or consideration of the implications on local residents to retain the crossover, residents fear that permanent closure would be the easy way out for the authorities.  All other Dandenong Road crossovers remain open for the benefit of their local residents.

With Vicroads Vince Panaro expected to make his assessment and decision on the future of the crossover in early March 2016, now is the time to voice your opposition.
