MASDAG (Mount Alexander Shire Disability Advocacy Group) reported our concern about the unsafe pedestrian crossing at the Barker Street-Parker Street area in September 2018 and are pleased to hear that that the government has made funds available to the shire to improve the safety. 
Barker Street is a Regional Roads Victoria responsibility and MASDAG understands that the shire has been advocating for safe crossing at this area for a long time. That area is a seriously dangerous hot spot and we are relieved that a solution is imminent. We support the local resident group calling for a safe crossing in this area.
