Meanwhile, Mr Guy vowed to tear up a plan to build a three-kilometre missing link in the popular off-road cycling trail alongside Beach Road, siding with locals who do not want to see any of the arterial road narrowed.
Under a plan developed by the Kingston City Council in Melbourne’s south-east, a 3.2-kilometre stretch of Beach Road will be narrowed to make space for a new cycling and walking path along the foreshore.
The council’s plan is meant to preserve vegetation along the foreshore, but will require the loss of 17 parking spaces, and a reduction by up to one metre in the width of Beach Road, a four-lane carriageway.
VicRoads has approved the council plan.
He said a narrower Beach Road would be less safe and more congested.
"I’m sick to death of seeing roads being narrowed across Melbourne when we are the fastest growing city in Australia," he said.
