Background

In response to complaints about speeding in Heatherbank Terrace, the Council undertook traffic surveys which confirmed that traffic speeds in Heatherbank Terrace were too high and intervention was warranted. The Council then sought independent advice about the preferred traffic calming method to deal with the issue. As a result, and following consultation with residents of Heatherbank Terrace, a ‘Driveway Entry’, or ‘chicane’, was installed in Heatherbank Terrace in June 2016.

As a result of the installation, the 85th percentile traffic speed in Heatherbank Terrace has reduced by more than 10 km/h from 68km/h, prior to the installation of the Driveway Entry, to 56 km/h. The 85th percentile speed is the maximum speed that 85 per cent of motorists that use Heatherbank Terrace are travelling at.

Complaints about the Driveway Entry

Since the installation of the Driveway Entry, the Council has received some complaints about it. There have also been requests from some Stonyfell residents to Council to remove the Driveway Entry.

Complaints relate to matters such as landscaping, signage, the construction levels of the Driveway Entry and rubbish dumping.

How do I have my say?

A comprehensive review of the matter is underway and the results presented to Council on 27 April 2017.
