Murray Road consultation results

Murray Road consultation results

To do this, we've combined aspects of Option 1 and Option 2 to come up with a design that uses the community's preferred parts of each proposal, while avoiding some of their challenges.The combined design retains Murray Road as a two-way road east of Ward Road, with a new boardwalk for cyclists, and converts Murray Road west of Ward Road to a one-way road with a more significant barrier between cyclists and traffic. 36 respondents wrote about this in extended responses.We responded by: This design limits road widening, and only a small amount of vegetation near the eastern end of Murray Road will be impacted.The community said: The safety of cyclists and pedestrians is critical. We're also exploring adding further traffic-calming features, like speedbumps, to the design.The community said: Access to driveways for properties facing Murray Road matters.We responded by: This design maintains the use of Murray Road as a two way road between Ward Road and the Bellarine Highway, where properties have sole access off Murray Road.The community said: Respondents liked the idea of the boardwalk, but cost and maintenance was a concern.We responded by: Including a boardwalk between Ward Road and the Bellarine Highway.
