Traffic calming on Amber Woods Drive

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

With approximately 1000 new homes being built in the Glenside Development, traffic volumes are expected to increase on Amber Woods Drive, Glenside.

Council is investigating if the community wish to undertake traffic calming on Amber Woods Drive pre-empting the expected increase in traffic volumes.

Background

Concerns have been raised by members of the community, and shared by Council, in relation to an expected increase of traffic along Amber Woods Drive, Glenside, as a result of the residential development being undertaken on the former Glenside Hospital site.

At its completion, the development will result in approximately 1000 new dwellings.

While a newly signalised intersection on Fullarton Road and left turn exit only onto Greenhill Road will likely carry a large majority of the additional traffic, it is believed Amber Woods Drive will be viewed by many of the new residents as a convenient route when travelling to and from the north and the eastern areas of Adelaide.

A proposed solution

With approximately 1000 new homes being built in the Glenside Development, traffic volumes are expected to increase on Amber Woods Drive, Glenside.

Council is investigating if the community wish to undertake traffic calming on Amber Woods Drive pre-empting the expected increase in traffic volumes.

A Driveway Link would deter additional traffic from using Amber Woods Drive allowing for two-way traffic flow but with only one vehicle at a time.

If traffic calming is supported, Council seeks feedback on which option residents prefer:

1. One driveway link installed near the Cedar Woods access Gate at the western end of Amber Woods Drive (see the map below).

2. Two driveway links. One driveway link installed near the Cedar Woods access Gate at the western end of Amber Woods Drive and the second constructed mid-block between Conyngham Street and Plane Tree Drive (see the map below).

Below: example of the proposed Driveway Link on the western end of Amber Woods Drive.
