Residents draw to the attention of the Council that a large number of pedestrians cross Jane Street to enter Davies Park in West End every day. Every Saturday, there is a farmers market in Davies Park from 6am to 2pm and hundreds of people, especially coming from Buchanan Street or riverside, cross Jane Street from near the crossing of Buchanan Street and Jane Street. Also, Davies Park hosts footy club matches almost every Sunday and Sunset Social on alternate Fridays. Hence, a substantial number of pedestrians cross Jane Street to enter Davies Park from, again, near the crossing of Buchanan Street and Jane Street. In addition to this, this being a densely populated area, every day local residents and joggers also cross Jane Street to enter Davies Park from the same location. There is no Give Way or Stop sign for traffic coming from Buchanan Street to Jane Street. This makes the entrance of Davies Park opposite to Buchan Street very vulnerable to pedestrians as traffic comes from three sides i.e. from Buchanan Street, on Jane Street towards and from riverside at high speed.
Your petitioners therefore request Council to put a zebra (pedestrian) crossing at Jane Street near the corner of Buchanan Street for pedestrians to enter Davies Park safely.
