Relatives of a woman who was killed on a pedestrian crossing in Carrum Downs have welcomed the announcement of safety work after more than a year of “fierce lobbying”. Phyllis Miles was killed at the McCormicks Rd crossing in July 2019, prompting her goddaughter Amanda Cox and grandson Michael Miles to petition Frankston City Council and state and federal MPs to carry out safety improvements at the crossing.

The Federal Government has allocated $743,911 to install pedestrian-operated signals with a raised safety platform near the Skye Oak Tree Retirement Village and shopping centre at McCormicks Rd, as well as providing $788,000 in black spot funding for the O’Gradys Rd/Frankston-Dandenong Rd intersection in Carrum Downs, and $198,000 for the McClelland Rd/Skye Rd intersection in Langwarrin.

“Losing such an important person in our lives really made us feel compelled to do something that would protect other families from ever having to experience what our family has experienced,” Amanda said. “Being able to honour the memory of my loving and caring godmother, who leaves such a big hole in our hearts, is something I know she would support and be proud we’ve been able to achieve after a little over a year of fierce lobbying.”

Amanda and Michael thanked the council – especially engineering services manager Doug Dickins – as well as Carrum state Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny and Dunkley federal Labor MP Peta Murphy “for supporting us to achieve this outcome”.

Frankston City Mayor Sandra Mayer also thanked Victorian Liberal Senator David Van for his help. “It is fantastic to see all three levels of government working together alongside the local community, particularly Amanda and Michael, to achieve important investment to improve our community’s safety and journey through these vital road upgrades,” Cr Mayer said. “This is welcome news for commuters travelling along these roads, making the journey for hundreds of people safer and quicker.”
