FIX THE NICHOLSON ST BENDS

The end section of Nicholson Street in Brunswick East, where the road bends and weaves past a Primary School and into Albion street has been a crash hot spot for decades. Residents live in fear of a car coming through their house. 

The road is managed by Department Of Transport, but the council manages the footpaths. There is confusion over who is responsible. 

In 2016, Moreland Council removed a safety barrier. Since then, a single house has been crashed into no less than 7 times. We've heard other residents have also sustained damage. 

A survey conducted by this office found that of the 39 respondents:

  • 92% rated walking on the Albion-Nicholson footpath as unsafe.
  • 95% said they had seen evidence of an incident along the bends two or more times in the last 12 months.
  • There have been 28 separate incidents of fence damage, mostly in the past five years.
  • 11 of those who live on the bend have had their property damaged by a vehicle at least once.
