Residents draw to the attention of Council the need to provide funding for Zebra pedestrian crossings on Flinders Parade, Sandgate. Flinders Parade is a busy road which runs the entire length of the Sandgate and Brighton Foreshore. It carries a large number of vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians seeking access to the foreshore areas. There are a number of cafes and fish and chip shops, the Sandgate Aquatic Centre and extensive parklands connected via Flinders Parade.
Council has two Zebra Pedestrian Crossings listed for funding for a number of years now, but to date they have not been constructed. The suggested locations from Council include near the Sandgate Aquatic Centre and between Third and Fourth Avenue, Sandgate. Pedestrian counts have already been conducted and support the installation of Zebra Crossings to make this area safe for the thousands of residents and visitors who use and/or visit the foreshore and local businesses.
Your petitioners therefore request Council immediately fund the installation of two Zebra Pedestrian Crossings on Flinders Parade near the Sandgate Aquatic Centre and between Third and Fourth Avenue, Sandgate.
