I agree with Ms Beaumont, we already have considerable traffic congestion, much of it commercial, along Gaffney Street and around the intersection between Sydney Road and Gaffney/Murray Roads. The speed limit along Gaffney Street should be dropped to 50 kms/hr, although I am aware it is hard to enforce such limits. However, pedestrians and cyclists need greater protection - I know from personal experience. It was only recently while driving that I had to reroute down a side road as a cyclist had been hit by a car on what was a relatively quiet day.

While I have nothing against the proposed hotel, I wonder why on earth you would have a child centre located within the development. Given that there is an existing child care centre within the Pentridge development and a new one proposed for Elizabeth Street, North Coburg, how many child care centres do we need? Such a centre would further increase traffic right next to a major intersection that has had its fair share of accidents.
