“Yarraville village is one of the most unusual traffic spots in Melbourne. Many changes have been made over the years to help the area function better. The next and possibly most significant will be the introduction of a Shared Zone. These exist in many parts of Melbourne and involve a reduced speed limit and giving pedestrians right of way throughout the zone. It is already a standard practise in all large car parks and exists in shopping precincts in Canberra, Adelaide and Perth. This will be the first in a shopping precinct in Melbourne. I’ve been working on this project for over a year and I believe it will make Yarraville village a safer and more pedestrian friendly area.”
