Eastwood - Local Area Traffic Management (LATM)

Consultation has concluded

Council is consulting with residents of Eastwood about the volume and speed of traffic travelling in and through the area. To explore the extent of these issues, and develop solutions, Council seeks input from the Eastwood community.

The opportunity

In 2010 the residents of Eastwood raised safety and amenity issues about the speed and volume of traffic on their local streets. A traffic study and community consultation was undertaken at this time but, as an outcome of the consultation, no traffic control measures were installed.

The residents of Eastwood have since continued to raise safety and amenity issues with Council in relation to the speed and volume of traffic.

It is understood these issues are the result of non-local traffic travelling between Glen Osmond Road and Fullarton Road.

As a resident you will have knowledge of the extent of the problem, how the issue affects you, and what (if any) remedies would be acceptable to you.

To gain your feedback Council proposes to undertake a three phase consultation process that includes:

  • this initial survey - see below
  • a public meeting with residents from the Eastwood LATM area, and
  • a second survey on any specific proposed traffic calming solutions that arise through the consultation process.

Any required construction work identified from this consultation process would involve construction in the 2015/16 financial year.

Potential treatments

Treatment options include:

  • angled slow points
  • one-way street
  • speed humps
  • road closure - part or full
  • road entry treatments
  • driveway link.

What happens next - a three phase engagement

Update

In March 2015 Council consulted with the residents of Eastwood via an information brochure and survey on local traffic management issues. From this engagement a number of properties responded from within the study area asking Council to explore solutions to the traffic concerns.

A public meeting was held on Thursday 19 March at the Eastwood Community Centre and residents representing a number of properties attended this meeting.

At the meeting the pros, cons and viability of various options for traffic calming and control devices were discussed, along with traffic and crash data.

The residents advised Council that the speed and volume of cut-through traffic in their neighbourhood are of most concern to them.

Council considered the feedback, the appropriate traffic treatments and what traffic treatments were supported by residents at the public meeting.

A third phase of the engagement was undertaken to seek resident feedback on suggested traffic calming solutions to the issues that were raised at the public meeting.

The third engagement period commenced on 16 July and closed 7 August. Click here to see further details on this engagement.
