The Promenade in Beacon Cove

There are things to love and things to get frustrated by on the Promenade. Issues regularly raised with me are
  • stairs on the pedestrian path making it difficult or inaccessbile to people wheeling prams or in wheelchairs
  • arising from this, conflict between cyclists and pedestrians on the cycle path
  • the towers that open directly into the path of oncoming cyclists

On the other hand, there are the things to love:

  • the man with the small dog who watches the sea
  • watching the ships come and go
  • admiring the beacon in its many moods

What are your thoughts about the Promenade? Come and tell us at the two sessions scheduled for 9 and 24 February at the Port Melbourne Town Hall. The background report discusses the Promenade in more detail. The report is listed under library on the project page if you click here.
