In Melbourne Shabbat begins Fri 25 Aug 2017 05:34 PM and ends Sat 26 Aug 2017 06:35 PM
י"ג חשון ה' אלפים תשס"ט
Twenty-two additional intersections have been identified as priorities following the request by the Council of Orthodox Synagogues of Victoria (COSV) to all synagogues to identify those traffic lights in their area requiring automation on Shabbat and Yom Tov. Representative stakeholders have considered the nominated intersections and have included all of them in the final list.
This list has been forwarded by Inspector Margaret Lewis of Victoria Police to Vic Roads. It is intended that a meeting will take place between the JCCV and Vic Roads in the next few days to discuss arrangements for the activation of automatic lights at these intersections.
Community members are reminded to continue to exercise extreme care when crossing roads at all times, particularly after dark on Shabbat and Yom Tov.
For further information about this community initiative please contact Geoffrey Zygier at the JCCV on 9272 5579
I suggest that the green traffic lights are always synchronised with the green man - as is done in other countries. If this is not possible then please have them synchronised from the time people go to shul (earliest time) till they have had time to go home after Shabbat or Yom Tov i.e. about 25 hours. After all, people walk at all times of day & night on Shabbat & Yom Tov.
