We at Bicycle Users Geelong are very happy about the truck ban. Some of our members have reported positively about the quieter and safer streets.
We feel it should be extended indefinitely and Council should really pressure VicRoads to reduce heavy vehicles on Ryrie st. It seems to be taking more trucks and is worse off for it.
More generally we’d expect that Council and CoGG staff are working really hard to prioritise active transport over vehicles (as specified in the last few City Plans, Central Geelong Actions Plan, Health and Wellbeing plan, and recent Central Geelong Parking and Access Strategy).
