South Brisbane and South Bank

enough's enough…

melbourne-grey-intersection-1152009Pedestrians have been told to watch their step after a man was hit by a bus on the corner of Grey and Melbourne Streets on Sunday at about 5.30pm. If the government can spend $63 million on a foot bridge to link South Brisbane to the law courts, surely it’s reasonable to expect there’s a solution to fix this notorious inner city junction. After more that $75,000 worth of reports and upgrades, why can’t council fix this problematic junction of buses, cars and foot traffic?

Here are some interesting stats:

  • 30 crashes from 2001-2007
  • 1 person killed, 23 hospitalized
