The aim of the study is to develop a strategic approach to identifying and addressing key issues taking into account previous treatments undertaken and any additional measures that may be required.
The Council, at its meeting held on 28 April 2014 resolved to undertake a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study for the areas of Forestville / Everard Park bounded by Leader Street, Anzac Highway, South Road, the tram line and the train line. This was in response to a number of submissions received from members of the Community expressing concern at traffic issues in the area.
Traffic in this area has been of concern to Council and the community over a number of years and some of the issues raised include:
Non-local traffic ‘rat-running’ through the area especially along First, Second and Third Avenues
The installation of speed cushions in Leah Street has resulted in traffic transferring to adjacent streets.
The removal of the speed humps in Everard Terrace has resulted in increased vehicle speeds.
Traffic, access and parking in Nairne Terrace are a problem.
Vehicular, cyclists and pedestrian access along Norman Terrace (particularly section between Leah Street and Ethel Street) due to the narrower road width
On street parking issues related to the activities at the Showgrounds.
The aim of the proposed study is to develop a strategic approach to identifying and addressing key issues taking into account previous treatments undertaken and any additional measures that may be required. Most of the known traffic management and parking issues in the area are longstanding, and solutions to address them without impacting on other streets, may not be easy to identify. Furthermore, implementation of any proposed changes will be subject to future funding allocations by Council.
A “Traffic Control Tool Kit” can be viewed here for your information prior to providing feedback, the toolkit outlines some of the options available to Council to address traffic problems.
