  1. Update.

    Ideas have been floated and they don’t include a bypass across Lake Colac… they are about a ‘Curfew’ and ‘Alternative Route’ around the lake.
    Investigation would NOT be funded by local government.

  2. I live on Murray st and have some problem with the trucks past my house e.g Speeding, tailgating and phone use… but that also goes for other road users.
    But in the CBD, I think people find issue with the noise and smell of some of the trucks.

  3. Who is making complaints about trucks anyway? is it businesses who close at 5:30PM? or is it people who live in Murray Street? you people complaining need to put your name and faces to this and tell us why and you think Trucks in Murray Street are a problem then try living in parts of Geelong or Melbourne. Get used to it or Move!

  4. Perhaps the municipality should bite down hard and plan this stuff properly? Dennis Street is no solution! Youโ€™re only moving the problem and creating another one straight away. Plan, lobby and build a proper heavy vehicle by pass. Stop putting it off like every other council and level of government has done!

  5. Wouldn’t the extra cost of transportation be added to the final cost of goods being carried?

    I very much doubt that VicRoads/Regional Roads would even bother looking at this idea when the cost to them would out weigh the benefits, especially considering the current and so far completed works.
    That said… YES! I do still support the idea of a heavy vehicle detour.

    But… What is the truth/real agenda behind this idea??? ?
