Help us transform Victoria Road
Imagine being able to sit on the footpath and have a coffee on Victoria Road without being hit by fumes and noise from seven lanes of traffic.
When WestConnex opens next year, it will include a toll-free underground bypass of Victoria Road between the Iron Cove Bridge and the ANZAC Bridge that will reduce traffic along Victoria Road by 50%.
This is an opportunity to transform Victoria Road into a place for people, not just cars, by:
- Reducing traffic lanes in both directions
- Widening footpaths
- Adding trees and native plantings, and
- Adding bicycle lanes
This transformation wouldn’t just make Victoria Road safer for pedestrians and cyclists, it could make it a vibrant destination supporting local cafes, small businesses, outdoor seating and nature.
To the Minister for Cities, Infrastructure and Active Transport:
When the Iron Cove Link is opened, there will only be a small window of opportunity to take back some of Victoria Road for the community. Make this strip a place for people, not just cars by reducing traffic lanes, widening footpaths, and adding trees and bicycle lanes.
