Queuing Lane for Spirit of Tasmania and Cruise Ships

There have been some posts on this already under the heading of "Beach Street Separated Queuing Lane" but not everybody understands the significance of this title.

Most residents will have experienced the traffic queues that can occur on Beach Street northbound approaching Station Pier during busy Spirit of Tasmania and cruise ship days.  These queues can effectively block access to much of Beacon Cove from the south (unless you know a "rat run" through the back streets).

The BCNA has been working with the City of Port Phillip (CoPP) to address this issue and some initial concepts have been created (download here) for which feedback is needed through an online survey which closes next week.  We strongly encourage Beacon Cove residents to look at the concepts and provide feedback through the survey.
