With the support of Victoria Police and VicRoads about 100 residents successfully blocked the intersection of Moore and Hopkins Street, Footscray. The protesters demanded action on the out of control truck traffic through the residential area.
The blockade lasted about fifteen minutes in which the protesters demanded immediate night and weekend curfews, 50kph speed limits and the banning of air horns and engine brakes.
Families, the elderly, children and babies in prams attended the protest.
The Government now has to take the resident’s concerns seriously and be prepared to respond.
Less Trucks For Moore is willing to work with all interested parties to seek a prompt resolution on this critical community issue. Less Trucks For Moore reserves the right to use public demonstrations in the future, if there is not a satisfactory response from the Government.
