Council performs U-Turn on Clearways

Cr Rose Iser has expressed concern about Council voting to work with VicRoads to implement AM Clearways in Moonee Valley.

“Council voted on July 15th to oppose any extension to Clearways and has now changed its position for AM Clearways. Is every position of Council open for reversal in this way?” said Cr Iser.

“While addressing traders’ concerns has rightly been mentioned, there are safety issues and concerns raised by residents that also require attention. When cars move faster, pedestrians are put at risk – particularly getting on and off trams,” she said.

There is very little traffic in Mt Road after 9:15am and there is no need for extended clearways – in effect creating a ‘freeway’ to be used in preference to the CityLink tollway” Cr Iser said.
