Thanks to a reader who emailed me to alert me of this article, I learned that there is supposedly a plan to turn Rushall Crescent in North Fitzroy into a 6 lane major arterial road. Looking at the map, it makes no sense. It doesn’t go anywhere or connect to other major roads at both ends. I suspect that this issue has been manufactured as a political stunt, but I have no trust in the state government. Given that the Old Colonists’ retirement village on Rushall Crescent is heritage protected, I just can’t see how this plan is possible, let alone plausible.
