    The design concept for Carnegie with a proposed tram line through Koornang Road will instead increase the volume of traffic on Murrumbeena Road and defeat somewhat the benefit of the sky-rail at Murummbeena.It appears that Council is determined to progress with the tram line concept irrespective of any community objections. How is Council addressing this outcome to increasing traffic on Murrumbeena Road?

    I'm in favor of design 1 as it allows for better connectivity of north and south parts of M'beena. Allows for easier access to M'beena primary for pedestrians and school drop offs from the south end. Although Neerim Rd should remain two way for improved access to the shopping strip and greater choice in direction of traffic flow which should be good for the businesses. A right turn from M'beena Rd onto Railway Ave should be introduced to allow rail users easier access to the rail car park, thus reducing the need to cut through Dunoon and Ardyne Streets. Joe Kovacs

    how are we improving the area for shop owners that reside on Murrumbeena rd? Shops like Three little bakers, Tuscana, chai thai, nava Golden lion...ect The design both focus on Neerim rd only we need to look holistically to benefit all business owners and residents within the area.

    why have we not considered removing the centre tree lane and expanding the footpath for shop owners to have more outdoor space for table and chair? This could increase foot traffic and allow family with pets to enjoy the cafes or mums with prams.

    why have we not considered slip lanes or railway parade for bus stops and keeping bus off the main rd, so that traffic flow is not impacted on pick up?

    What traffic control measures are proposed for Hobart Road and Ardyne Street where they connect to new link road in option One? Earlier traffic reports suggested one way or other restrictions but current plan does not give details.

    Option 1 Link Road does not show the traffic control measures required in the side streets. Given that murrumbeena currently enjoys a village feel because it is NOT a thoroughfare, how will turning it into one maintain or improve amenity for the residents most impacted?

      Option 1 - One Way Traffic: Couldn't agree more. Where are the plans on how council would manage, what I suspect, would be a significant number of cars rat-running down residential streets!

    Where is the SUBSTATION to be built? Plans indicate that it is opposite Ardyne St. Is this correct? It gets no mention in any Council plans!

    Why isnt there an option for leaving Neerim Road as a two way road and creating the link road?? I am opposed to the one-way concept as I dont think it will work.
