Montague Road is becoming busier and busier with the opening of more cafes, Aldi, childcare centres and construction of several apartment blocks. This is introducing more cars and pedestrians to the area but there has been no change to traffic management. In particular, the area between Kurilpa and Vulture Streets where there is a hill mere metres before popular bus stops. Between these areas there is nowhere safe for pedestrians to stop and pedestrians often become frustrated resulting in dangerous crossing decisions out of desperation. As the area becomes more popular, this needs to be addressed and rectified to prevent tragedy.

Installation of a pedestrian crossing or traffic lights to enable safe crossing of the road.
