Whoever is doing maintenance on that truck isn't very good at keeping the tires attached, but the alignment was perfect. It's 550 metres from Walnut to Victoria.

On a more serious note, last night at the Complete Streets meeting at FRWY, Steve Molloy spoke about the tension between the concepts of "truck traffic" and "goods movement", arguing that what local residents perceive as undesirable "truck traffic" is necessary to meet local needs for delivery of goods to homes and businesses.

It would be fascinating to know whether this "large tractor trailer" full of gravel was travelling to or from any destination near Main and Walnut. From personal observation I would say that it is overwhelmingly more likely that it had come from the 403 and was heading to a destination considerably further east.

A truck route plan that nudged trucks towards using controlled access highways for as much of their route as possible would reduce the risk of such pedestrian injuries.
