The pedestrian crossings on the corner of Smithfield Road and outside Newmarket Plaza are dangerous.
Last year, a man waiting for a tram outside Newmarket Plaza was killed after a car and ambulance collided on Racecourse Road - it was a terrible tragedy. More recently several pedestrians have had close run-ins at the intersection that could have ended in someone getting seriously injured, or worse.
We are concerned that because of the dangerous design of these roads it will only be a matter of time before another tragedy occurs.
We desperately need these crossings changed to protect pedestrians, cyclists and all motorists before another tragedy occurs.
We call on our elected representatives to work together to fix these crossings so that pedestrians, cyclists, and all motorists can use our roads safely.
