State Nationals MP, Tim Bull, is supportive of more pedestrian crossings on the Esplanade in Lakes Entrance and has encouraged the community to attend an information session that will progress the proposal.
“We all know how busy the town gets in holiday periods several times a year and with large pedestrian numbers, often families with young children, and high traffic volumes, there is in my view clearly a need for additional safe crossing areas,” Mr Bull said.
Mr Bull, who last week raised the matter in Parliament, said the consultation would be held at the Lakes Entrance Coast Guard rooms between 11.30am and 1pm next Wednesday, August 23.
“I understand VicRoads has a number of plans to address road safety concerns in and around Lakes Entrance and that the installation of pedestrian crossings is one of them,” he said.
“My office has received contact by a number of constituents who believe there is a need for one or more crossings in Lakes.
“I am advised VicRoads has already sought the views of the community following a number of meetings in town, however I do hope further opinion will be considered at the information sessions,” Mr Bull said.
