Have your Say on traffic management devices to be installed in Marden and Royston Park


Following community consultation in relation to traffic and safety concerns, the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters is proposing to install traffic management devices in Marden and Royston Park.

The devices were requested by the community following an extensive consultation process in which the Council received more than 400 responses.

A majority of the respondents were in support of traffic management devices in order to address safety concerns.

Mayor Robert Bria said the feedback identified that road closures were not supported by the majority of the respondents, instead, slow points and landscaped islands were supported.

“It is important to understand that traffic management devices strategically work together in a network which means each device relies on each other to have effect,” Mayor Bria said.

“These traffic management devices aim to reduce traffic speed, discourage non-local through traffic, improve walking and cycling amenity and increase landscaping opportunities.”

The Council is now at the stage of installing these devices and the community is invited to review the proposed traffic management designs in Marden and Royston Park (between Lower Portrush Road and Battams Road) and provide comments by Friday, 15 March 2024.
