Ms PATTEN (Northern Metropolitan) (13:04:35):
My question is to the Minister for Roads and Minister for Road Safety and the TAC. Recently I met with a group of concerned traders called Revitalise Nicholson Street.
They are a passionate group from local businesses who are attempting to ensure that the popular and bustling Nicholson Street in Carlton North keeps innovating and upgrading to ensure the future success of all traders.
One of their main concerns is that there is a 60-kilometre-per-hour speed limit in the area of Nicholson Street between Scotchmer and Park streets.
It seems out of step with other 40-kilometre-per-hour precincts in the surrounding parts of Nicholson Street. The traders would like to know why other high foot traffic zones of Nicholson Street are 40 but their section of the road remains dangerously high.
