This week back in the 3CR studio, Chris chats to Matthew Townsend about Safer Cycling for Stonnington about working towards safer and healthier transport, shared spaces for pedestrians and cyclists, and a renaissance of outdoor dining on Stonnington's streets and what needs to happen to make Chapel Street and Stonnington more attractive and safer for active transport.
