Advocacy success: Union St, crossing of Punt Road

This happened a while ago, but we are very excited that the Union St crossing east of Punt Road (heading westbound) now allows bicycles (only) to continue straight ahead!  This came about from a bike ride we led MP Sam Hibbens (Prahran electorate includes St Kilda East) on.  He took it to the Road Safety Minister and VicRoads made these infrastructure changes.  It enables cyclists from Balaclava, East St Kilda, Windsor and Prahran to ride Westbound along Union Street and directly connect with St Kilda Road – avoiding chaotic St Kilda Junction, one of the worst parts of St Kilda Road.  Tell your friends, and let us know what you think!
