CRA Transport Policy – draft 2023
An important part of the quality and residential amenity of Carlton is the streets and associated traffic including public transport, bicycles and pedestrians.
Over the last 45 years our streets have changed dramatically from wide, treeless bitumen thoroughfares to attractive streets with medians and now mature trees. Through traffic has been reduced by street closures and calming measures such as lane reductions, controlled turns, speed humps. Bicycle and pedestrian paths have been improved and footpaths widened in the commercial areas to allow outdoor eating.
Carlton has had good public transport for a long time and improvements have been made such as the underground rail line now under construction.
There are still areas for improvement and issues of concern that are covered in part in this policy.
The Carlton Residents Association (CRA) has contributed to the City of Melbourne (CoM) transport policies leading to the now adopted ‘Transport Strategy 2030’.
Government policies and committed projects have changed since our previous policy was adopted – ‘CRA Traffic Transport and Parking Policy 2015’.
