Facilities for Women's Sport

Earlier this year, Ellen and I met with clubs and players at Brens Pavilion.

The number of women and girls using the facilities is growing fast, which is wonderful. But the facilities were built for men in the 60's and are in dire need of repair.

I'm delighted that Council has decided to expedite detailed designs to refurbish Brens Pavilion in our 2019-20 Council Budget.

Safer Cycling in the CBD

The current peak-hour only bike lanes on Exhibition Street just aren’t safe.

I’m delighted that Melbourne City Council supported my proposal last night to make Exhibition St a fully separated bicycle route, linking the busy Canning and Yarra Trail cycling corridors.

This will cost $2.6m and a lot of lost revenue in on-street parking, but safety comes first.
