Hallett Road Traffic Management Changes

This consultation has concluded.

The City of Burnside is committed to improving traffic management and safety by updating the line marking and traffic control at Hallett Road.

Hallett Road

Hallett Road is one of the busiest Council maintained roads and provides a crucial role providing access to many local streets and areas as well as linking Kensington Road with Greenhill Road.

Hallett Road spans multiple suburbs including Stonyfell, Wattle Park, Erindale and Burnside.

Proposed Line Marking

The current line marking and traffic control at Hallett Road is minimal. It is therefore proposed to implement a new line marking scheme that will improve safety and potentially lower traffic speeds.

Map

The map below shows the plan for the full length of Hallett Road. Specific sections of the map may be viewed in more detail in the image gallery.

Key Issues Considered

Some of the key issues considered when developing the proposal included:

  • The volume and speed of existing traffic
  • Vehicle class (cars, trucks, buses, cyclists etc)
  • Pedestrians and access across the road
  • Car parking and sight distance at intersections

Aim of the Plan

The introduction of travel, parking, turning lanes and continuity lines (at intersections) will better define the road space. The visual restriction created by the line marking typically results in reduced speeds and safer driving practices.

Additional Pedestrian Refuge crossing aids (similar to the existing refuge at High Street) will also be introduced adjacent to Newland Reserve and Elizabeth Reserve (corner Heatherbank Terrace).

We value your Feedback

Feedback or questions relating to the proposal can be directed to David Hayes via the Email Us section below or phone 8366 4264.

The consultation is open until 5 pm Monday 3 March 2014.
