Just one more thing about the Port Melbourne Waterfront - Bay and Beach St

One of the areas covered by the Port Melbourne Waterfront study is the Bay/Beach St intersection. As I was crossing there this morning I marvelled at the various shortcomings of this intersection from a pedestrian stand point. There is very little space on the footpath to wait for the lights, pedestrians always have to be on the look out for turning vehicles - many of them heavy trucks. On the other side, having negotiated all that, you step straight onto the bike path.
Yet this is THE entrance to Bay St and Port Melbourne.
How could this area be improved?

I think about 150 to 200 people attended the information session last night.
The session introduced people to the 5 areas examined in the background study and people commented on the issues and opportunities in the report.
There was quite a bit of commentary on Council's current management of the area.
