Local Area Traffic Management Study update


The Council has engaged Tonkin Consulting to undertake its Stepney Maylands Evandale Local Area Traffic Management Study (LATM Study).

The LATM Study encompasses all local roads under the care, control and management of the Council located within the area bound by Portrush Road, Payneham Road and Magill Road (LATM Study Area).

Purpose of the LATM Study

The key objective of the LATM Study is to identify and address issues which exist within the Study Area associated with traffic management and safety for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. These issues include number of vehicles, speeds, cut-through movements and crashes.

The LATM Study will not include on-street parking as the Council is undertaking a City-Wide Parking Review as a separate project.

Study stages

The LATM Study is being delivered in two community consultation stages. Stage 1 consultation has been completed and Stage 2 will commence later this year.

Residents, property and business owners within the Study Area are strongly encouraged to participate in Stage 2 consultation, as the feedback received will be critical to the success of the Project.

Information on how to submit feedback will be provided on this website, once the consultation period has been confirmed.

LATM Study Stages Summary

  • Stage 1

    In progress

    Community Consultation (20 November - 15 December 2017).

    Members of the community, including residents, property and business owners, were invited to assist in identifying the key issues which needed to be considered and addressed. More than 400 written submissions were received.

    An analysis of the Stage 1 consultation results, as well as the various traffic data which was collated from the Study Area, is currently being undertaken and will guide the development of a Draft Local Area Traffic Management Plan (the draft Plan).

    The draft Plan will set out the key issues which have been identified and recommend strategies to address these issues. Completion of the draft Plan is expected by the end of June 2018.

  • Stage 2


    Community Consultation (expected to be in August 2018 but is yet to be confirmed).

    This round of consultation will invite residents, property and business owners and members of the community to provide comments on the draft Plan.

    These comments will guide the development of the final Plan, which is expected to be presented to the Council for endorsement in late 2018.
