State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley met with local residents, sporting clubs and representatives from Westfield to discuss the need for a pedestrian crossing on Magid Drive

At a meeting chaired by Ms Graley local residents and sporting clubs had the opportunity
to raise their concerns directly with Westfield representative Charlie Rimmer.

Ms Graley said the community led campaign had been ongoing for the past three years to provide local residents and sporting clubs with an accessible and safe crossing on Magid Drive.

“I am very pleased that we now seem to be making progress with Westfield and I look
forward to the City of Casey getting on board and facilitating the delivery of a pedestrian crossing on Magid Drive,”

“It is urgently needed to ensure the safety of local residents attempting to cross
Magid Drive to get to Westfield Shopping Centre,”

“Local sporting clubs including the Narre Warren Bowls Club and Fountain Gate Junior
Football Club have been crying out for a safer crossing for their members,”

“I will also be writing to VicRoads on their behalf to request the speed limit be lowered from 60 Kilometres.”

Ms Graley said that Marlene Fox and Kerrie Puts must be commended for their tireless efforts in campaigning for this much needed pedestrian crossing.

“They have led the charge for the past three years, never giving up and I can only hope that the City of Casey and Westfield will step up and do what’s right for the local community.”
