  1. I like the concept for Cremorne st and Stephenson st with the bike lane but I think that Balmain st should stay as a two way st. Residents need to access their homes via Balmain st and on street parking is needed for residents in Balmain st so as not to overflow into Cubitt and Dover streets

  2. The area between Balmain St and Citylink slip road should be a pedestrianised shared space (due to Era and Coppins Corner apartment block entrances, IGA and significant pedestrian movements). The Citylink entrance at the south end of Cremorne St could be closed.

    Alternative is improving the Punt Road footpath (east side) into a Shared Use Path from Swan St to Yarra River. However the Cremorne St cafes would then not benefit from this increased passing trade and patronage that inevitably happens with providing protected dedicated safe pedestrian and cycle facilities along shopping strips.
