Stepney Maylands Evandale LATM Study
Stepney Maylands Evandale Local Area Traffic Management Study (LATM Study).
Cost: $133, 000
Status: Implementation stage
The Council has endorsed a proposal to reduce the speed limit between Portrush Road, Payneham Road and Magill Road (not inclusive of arterial roads).
The proposal was endorsed by Council at its meeting held on Monday 1 April 2019, and comes following an in-depth traffic management study to identify the key issues on the area’s roads.
The study, which was designed by the Council and carried out by Tonkin Consulting, used a number of research methods to identify suitable recommendations for the area, including the results from 85 separate traffic speed and volume counts together with community consultation. The results of a survey that was sent to each property owner in the area indicated that speed and volume of traffic were residents’ main concern and 68 per cent of 340 respondents were in favour of a 40kph speed limit.
The Council will spend $133,000 on implementing the recommendations of the study which will include new signage and line marking etc, and will also work with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure to address the capacity of the arterial road network in the study area.
The Council will now lodge an application with the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Local Government for the introduction of the 40kph speed limit.
