NEWS 19 FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 2015 MILDURAWEEKLY.COM.AU By GRANT MAYNARD IT will cost an estimated $5million to extend Four- teenth Street from Ontario Avenue to Ranfurly Way and that, the members of Mildura West Inc. acknowledge, is “a big ask.” But a report the group commissioned to ascertain the feasibility of the exten- sion offers another alterna- tive – markedly improve pe- destrian safety in 11th Street. Estimated cost $223,144. While the long game will always be to see Fourteenth Street extended, Mildura West Inc. would be happy to settle in the short-term for Option 2, member Erin Fisher, PIC- TURED, said this week. It was Erin, a mother of two, who first raised pedes- trian safety concerns in 11th Street. She said she was driving her youngsters to the Park for Play simply because she did not feel safe walking them to the popular public play- ground. Erin found an ally in fellow Mil- dura West Inc. mem- ber Gordon Searle, who has been been a supporter of the idea to extend Fourteenth Street between Ontario and Ranfurly Way for more than two decades. Gordon contends that extending Fourteenth Street two kilometres would divert traffic away from predomi- nantly residential and rec- reational Eleventh Street..a street he considers too busy to be really safe for motorists or pedestrians! United by a common cause, the pair took their concerns and ideas to a meeting of their fellow Mil- dura West Inc., members – a group of community-mind- ed residents who decided the extension of Fourteenth, and improved pedestrian safety in Eleventh were causes worth championing. The group sought fund- ing from the Transport Ac- cident Commission to com- mission a traffic study of the area – and a feasibility study for the extension of Four- teenth Street. Funding secured, the group commissioned Mel- bourne-based specialists TTM Consulting to under- take the study. TTM’s Jim Higgs, the author of the report, spent several days in Mildura con- ducting his study that in- cluded the installation of a series of remote cameras, personal observation, and consultation with various stakeholder groups (includ- ing Mildura West Inc.) and individuals. • Continued Page 22 The push to extend Fourteenth Street from Ontario Avenue to Ranfurly Way – providing traffic to and from Merbein with an alternative to busy 11th Street – has been put squarely back on the municipal agenda... Mildura West residents put case to City Council Street between Ontario and Ranfurly Way for more than two decades.
