    Beach Street Separated Queueing Lane Update

    The City of Port Phillip (CoPP) recently held a workshop on this matter. The purpose of the workshop was to assist Council in developing success criteria for concept designs for the Beach Street separated queueing lane.  This concept of this lane has previously been raised and discussed as part of the Port Melbourne Waterfront Urban Design consultation process and is to to facilitate the traffic flow problems when cruise ship and Spirit of Tasmania generated traffic competes with peak hour traffic.

    Themes for discussion at the workshop were:

    • Reduced queueing for local traffic
    • Impact on parking
    • Impact on memorials
    • Reduction in open space

    The BCNA was among a number of key stakeholders were asked to help establish the successful criteria for the concept design.  We raised the potential impact of altering the kerb adjacent to 1-7 Waterfront Place and the shadowing to the kerb as outlined the 1-7 Waterfront Place C-104 building design.

    A further forum will be held and the outcome of the community consultation will be presented to the broader community at a public meeting being held on October 25th.
