Just under 1 month ago a truck driver hit 5 pedestrians who were standing at the FOOTPATH waiting for the lights to turn green.
Bollards and a new road sign were announced a couple of days ago to "manage" the situation.
On June 1st, another truck hit the newly installed road sign driving over the sign.
If there were pedestrians at that location they would have been in harms way.
Only a few days ago Ben Carroll the Minister for Laneways and Lorries announced he would be solving the problem with bollards and braces. At no time has there been a plan to remove these dangerous trucks from the inner city small road.
The answer can only be to force those B-Double trucks to take a different path between their locations. The issue also further highlights the failure of the government's freight strategy with more and more trucks being put onto the roads (including inner Melbourne roads) rather than fixing the rail network and making the transfer of goods between areas of Melbourne safely on rail.
