Stepney Maylands Evandale LATM Study

Stepney Maylands Evandale Local Area Traffic Management Study (LATM Study).

Cost: $133, 000Traffic local streets cropped
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.

    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 Report (the draft Report).

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

    Community Consultation (16 July - 6 August 2018).

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

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