My constituency question is for the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Last week I visited the Bell Street Merri Creek bridge site at the border of Coburg and Preston and met with some locals from the Safe Access over Bell Street Bridge for Everyone group. It was shocking to see how unsafe this intersection is and that the local community and schoolchildren in particular are being left vulnerable despite their ongoing efforts to get safety assessments done as soon as possible. We welcome that VicRoads is now planning to do some minor traffic calming works, but that is simply not enough. Minister, I request that you urgently provide a commitment to an immediate comprehensive safety assessment of the Bell Street risk zone to ensure the protection of Coburg High students.
