For the sake of transparency, one Warrnambool councillor wants results of a public survey about the success or failure of the controversial pedestrian-priority roundabouts made public.
But just whether the zebra crossings at CBD roundabouts will stay or go is still up in the air, with the city council still awaiting a traffic flow report before councillors will make the call.
The future of the crossings was put under review in April by the new council after the installation of the roundabouts about three years ago sparked community backlash.
Cr Ben Blain put the issue back in the spotlight revealing that the safety audit and community feedback had been completed and received by council but the results were yet to be shared with residents.
"The crossings can be a polarising debate," he said.
Cr Blain said he had asked back in July if the results of public consultation could be released.
"I think it's important we present what we've got, especially for transparency," he said.
"It doesn't seem to have been released yet so that's something I hope we see in the next little while.
"We're still waiting on a traffic flow report which hopefully will get back soon so we can hopefully make a decision on this."
In 2018, businesswoman and now city councillor Angie Paspaliaris presented a petition to the council with more than 5800 signatures calling for them to be removed.
In February, motorist Gavan Nevill also called for the council to review what was labelled one of the "worst decisions" of council.
Concerns were raised about the traffic "chaos" caused by the pedestrian-priority roundabout over the Christmas holiday period last year with vehicles backed up for the length of a block.
Mr Nevill said on one occasion on the corner of Liebig and Lava streets, cars were at a standstill for almost a block in four directions.
But news of the review prompted Warrnambool's community and disability sector to speak out in support of the pedestrian crossings, calling for them to be retained for the safety and inclusion of all residents.
