Lights for black spot A LONG-running campaign to improve safety at a Mt Eliza traffic black spot has been successful with the area’s federal MP Bruce Billson securing funding for a signalised pedestrian crossing that will also enable cars to trigger the lights. The $400,000 for signals was revealed in an email Mr Billson sent to interested parties on 9 May including Mornington MP David Morris, shire councillors and Mt Eliza safety campaigner and businesswoman Joanne Kidder. Mr Billson said a signalled pedestrian crossing would be installed on Nepean Highway “in the vicinity of Tower Rd and Volitans Ave (near the bus stops) and other treatments (including vehicle-activated under-road pads that will trigger the pedestrian traffic lights when cars seeking to enter Nepean Hwy from Tower Rd have been waiting a while. This should avoid dangerous manoeuvres by drivers who have run out of patience trying to enter the

Nepean Hwy traffic�. It has not been stated how long a driver will have to wait to trigger the lights. Mr Billson had sought “a roundabout or full signalisation at the intersection, however this is something VicRoads will not support�. Former Mt Eliza Ward shire councillor Leigh Eustace has been part of a group of residents lobbying since 2008 for traffic lights ideally or turn restrictions at a minimum at the Tower Rd–Volitans Ave intersection, which has claimed two lives and seen a number of so-called “injury crashes�. In January he told The News the intersection needed vehicle traffic lights and questioned why the federal government had provided more than $800,000 for a roundabout where Mt Eliza Way meets Wimborne and Kenaud avenues where there had been no fatalities (“Black spot needs traffic lights�, The News 13/1/15). Mornington MP David Morris, who lives in Mt Eliza, called for the state government to improve the intersection when he spoke in the Parliament mid-April. He said there had been “substantial development of the roads feeding into Tower Rd and to a lesser extent from Volitans Ave, but there are a lot more cars wanting to get onto the highway, and that has contributed to pressure on the intersection�. He said the most recent serious accident “occurred in December last year when a motorist hit a pole and had to be airlifted to The Alfred hospital. It [saving the driver] was a very close run thing, as I understand it�. Mike Hast

Bowel cancer scan MORNINGTON Rotary is promoting bowel cancer screening this month. “Men and women aged over 40 should take part in the program,� member David Lancashire said. Three Mornington pharmacies are on board: Chemist Discount Centre, Benton’s Square shopping centre, Pharmacy Advice, 20 Robertson Dr, Mornington and Priceline Pharmacy, Mornington Central, will supply the bowel scan kits for $10 each. “Bowel cancer is usually treatable and beatable if caught early,� Mr Lancashire said.

Lives behind the honour roll names ALTHOUGH no longer with us in the physical sense, the lives of the people named on the honour roll in Mornington’s Memorial Park come to a life of sorts in a book released on Anzac Day eve by Mornington and District Historical Society. Details of the lives of the 120 men and women on the honour roll who served in the World War I have been researched by the society’s vice-president, Val Wilson, and published in her

book, The Names on the Mornington Honour Roll 1914-1918. Who were they? The book was launched in the Mornington Peninsula Shire council chambers in Queens St, Mornington, by Lieutenant Colonel Ian Stewart AM (ret). The book describes the time at war of each individual, their families, jobs, their partners and, for those who survived and returned home, their

resettlement into civilian life. The book is a companion piece to the society’s Our Boys at the Front. This latest project was made with federal government help under the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program. The Names on the Mornington Honour Roll 1914-1918. Who were they? Costs $20 and is available at the Old Post Office Museum, corner Main St and the Esplanade, Mornington.
