My constituency question is to the Minister for Roads and Road Safety. Minister, in the last month there have been multiple deaths on the roads in my electorate, including the tragic deaths of a cyclist in Pascoe Vale South and a pedestrian in Coburg North. With the residents in Moreland increasingly choosing to abandon their polluting vehicles in favour of cheaper and cleaner transport like cycling and walking, it is disappointing that roads in my electorate have still not been made safe enough for these road users. What steps will you take to improve cyclist and pedestrian safety in the City of Moreland?
