In December 2016, over 100 delegates converged on the Melbourne Town Hall for the Vulnerable Road User and Truck forum. The forum was held in anticipation of the unparalleled traffic disruption associated with the construction of Melbourne’s Metro Tunnel Project (MTP). It is projected that over a five-year period, there will be one truck movement generated by the project every three minutes as spoil is carted from below Melbourne’s Central Business District (CBD). This forum resulted in an exceptional collaboration between Victoria’s transport and safety agencies, local government, contractors, and non-government agencies.
