Background

Following concerns raised by residents of speeding vehicles on Heatherbank Terrace, Council has investigated traffic calming treatments for this road. Due to the steep gradient of this street, traditional treatments such as road (speed) humps and angled slow points are not legal or practical options.


Other road treatments, such as the modified ‘T’ intersection at Gothic Avenue, and linemarking treatment on the bottom section of Heatherbank Terrace have also recently been installed to aid in reducing vehicle speed.

A further treatment is also required to effectively reduce vehicle speeds and Council suggests a driveway entry link be installed on Heatherbank Terrace between the intersections of Wurinya Avenue and Karri Street. This driveway link will encourage motorists to reduce their speed, increasing road safety.


Driveway Entry Link Treatment

A Driveway Link allows for two-way traffic flow but only in one direction at a time.


Vehicles approaching the device are required to stop and give-way to vehicles already travelling through it.

The installation of the driveway link will result in the loss of some localised on-street parking. A street light upgrade will also be undertaken to ensure safe lighting at night or in poor light conditions.

Below is a concept plan of the proposed driveway link treatment and an example of another driveway link installed within the City of Burnside.


Can I have a say?

Yes. Prior to proceeding Council seeks your feedback on the proposed Driveway Entry Link.

Please complete the survey by 5 pm, Wednesday 30 September 2015.

I need more information

If you need more information before giving comments on this proposal you can telephone David Hayes, Council’s Principal Traffic Engineer, on 8366 4200, or email to dhayes@burnside.sa.gov.au.

Residents will be advised of the outcome of this consultation. If the residents of Heatherbank Terrace support the driveway link, it is anticipated the installation would be completed early 2016.
