Make Sydney Road accessible for ALL – join the campaign

Christian Astourian and the late, great, Frank Hall-Bentick and the Disability Resource Centre have been key drivers of this campaign.  Under federal legislation, public transport in all states and territories was required to be fully accessible by the end of 2022.

When the Upfield train line is closed to remove the Brunswick level crossings and build Skyrail, there will be NO accessible public transport along the Upfield corridor for the duration of the project. There are no accessible tram stops on Sydney Road between Brunswick Road and Bakers Road, Coburg North – a 5.5km stretch.

Victorians with disabilities have started a petition to the Legislative Assembly to request that the Victorian Government install fully accessible tram stops on Sydney Road before the Upfield train line is closed for the level crossing removals.

Get involved by signing the petition or joining the list of organisations and individuals endorsing the campaign.  For queries regarding endorsement, contact Jen Hargrave:
