Glenunga – Local Area Traffic Management

This consultation has concluded.

The City of Burnside is committed to improving local area traffic management. In the Glenunga area, we recently asked you about traffic in your area using a resident survey and held a public meeting on 25 September 2013 on the topic.

We have considered the information and points that you raised. We would like to propose possible options that we believe will address some of these problems. We also invite you to tell us about any other issues you are aware of or feel may be created if any of these options are implemented.

Key safety and amenity issues raised

  • Cars parking too close to intersections
  • All day non-residential parking
  • Restricted access to and from driveways
  • Motorists cutting corners
  • Volume and speed of cut-through or rat running traffic
  • Sight distance at intersections
  • Road hump characteristics
  • Impacts on adjacent streets

Aim of the Plan

The Local Area Traffic Management Plan seeks to improve streetscape and road corridor amenity as well as resident and commuter safety.

It intends to provide a holistic plan for local area traffic management and is based on sound technical principles combined with the local knowledge of the community.

We value your feedback

You can provide feedback on the proposed options through the Survey below or send us your comments using the Email Us tab. 

The consultation is open from Monday 2 December 2013 to Monday 27 January 2014.

What happens next?

We invite you to let us know if we have missed anything or if suggested changes may create new problems.

Council will then review your responses and where required undertake further traffic investigations. We will inform you of our final plans and adjust as appropriate to take into consideration your feedback.

Council will then finalise the traffic management measures with the aim of enhancing safety for residents and commuters while preserving road amenity. If there is limited support for certain options then we may not proceed with these, or potentially any, suggested measures.

We will inform you of the results of this work by March 2014.
