 This episode of City Limits features audio from the Accessible Transport for ALL Rally that took place in Brunswick on 17th July 2023. We listen to speeches from Bram Heinrich-McPartlan (Chair of the Merri-bek Disability Reference Group), Councillor Monica Harte (Merri-bek, North-West Ward), and Elyse Cunningham (Sustainable Cities Campaigner at FOE Melbourne), music from the Riff Raff Radical Marching Band, and some words from Councillor Sue Bolton (Merri-bek, North-East Ward). Approximately 300 people attended the rally, stopping traffic and trams at the corner of Brunswick Town Hall.

 Later, we speak with regular transport commentator John McPherson, about public transport accessibility, Transurban, Labor's developments in the western suburbs of Melbourne, rail-freight, and more. 

 You can follow the the Sydney Road Accessible Transport Campaign on Facebook,
