Infrastructure Victoria has published the reports of its two citizen juries, along with a report of the consultation program for its All things considered options paper.

The juries, one regional and one metropolitan, were each made up of about 40 people randomly selected to consider how best to address Victoria’s infrastructure needs.

The juries met six times over a three month period to consider evidence, hear from experts and deliberate on over 200 options including projects and policy initiatives. Both juries met for the final time on Saturday 30 July and delivered a report of recommendations to Infrastructure Victoria.

Infrastructure Victoria will now consider the recommendations of the juries, along with all other feedback provided through the consultation program as outlined in the report, in the development of the draft strategy.

You will have to remove the MHL to get people on bikes. Stop pretending bikes are "regular traffic" separate them. Use J.S-K's New York Plan

Cycling should be legal on foot parts for all ages when no dedicated cycling infrastructure is available.

The MHL stops people cycling .There is no link between helmets and cycling safety. The countries with the safest cycling, don't wear helmets
