Hello all,

Here is an important update regarding the Walmer Street Bridge as it's 
part of the Capital City Trail and is vitally important for anyone 
crossing over the Yarra River between Abbotford and Kew.

Please feel free to forward this email + information to your fellow 
residents and local groups.


 From the Walmer Street Bridge Coalition, a group of concerned residents 
alongside Walmer Street Action Group, Collingwood and Abbotsford 
Residents Association (CARA), the Yarra and Boroondara Bicycle User Groups.

We know it's been a long time with no updates on Walmer Street Bridge.

Walmer Street Bridge Coalition want to bring your attention to an 
important issue that impacts the bridge and approaches.

At the following link there are amended plans for shared paths and 
approach ramps to the existing bridge:

607 - 627 VICTORIA STREET, ABBOTSFORD Permit number: DP1500043.02. The 
responsible authority won't make a decision before: 30 July 2020


These plans illustrate narrow switchback shared paths widths of less 
three metres that are subpar for AustRoads and VicRoads specifications.

The Safety Audit report included with the amendment documents assumes 
that “Cyclist Dismount” signs will be erected on the ramp
