Munro St / Railway Pl / Upfield Bike Path


This busy and dangerous crossing is widely regarded as a safety hazard by pedestrians and cyclists. The crossing is a gateway to Coburg station and shopping centre precinct, and a busy link on the Upfield Bike Path.

The crossing requires urgent improvement to protect the safety of the hundreds of pedestrians and cyclists using it every day.
