RACV has released the final results of the inaugural My Melbourne Road survey, receiving feedback from 5,000 motorists, cyclists, pedestrians and public transport users on their safety concerns of Melbourne’s transport network.
RACV’s My Melbourne Road, is how we listen to Victorians about their safety concerns regarding Melbourne’s transport network, so that we can act on behalf of the community to help improve safety on our roads.
Overview of key findings
- Overly complex intersections were the top safety issue identified.
- One-third of respondents called for lower speed zones on roads they use often.
- The most vulnerable road users – cyclists and pedestrians – were the most highly-represented in the feedback.
- Three of the roads with the most number of responses include Strategic Cycling Corridors, indicating that they are not safe enough for cyclists.
- Many of the solutions identified by respondents are low-cost and easy to implement, including zebra crossings and better-positioned traffic lights.
