Local Area Traffic Management Study - Clarence Park & sections of Goodwood, Millswood, and Wayville

Consultation has concluded

We are undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management study (LATM) in the area highlighted to the right. This area includes the suburb of Clarence Park, and sections of Goodwood, Millswood and Wayville west of Goodwood Road.

This will involve consideration of traffic data and community feedback in order to make improvements to the road network. This will be focused on reducing unnecessary traffic in residential streets, ensuring streets operate in alignment with their role and function in the network, and encouraging walking and cycling through infrastructure improvements. This letter is to introduce the study to the community and seek your feedback and experiences as a motorist, cyclist or pedestrian using the area.


What is Local Area Traffic Management?

Local Area Traffic Management is an approach to identify and address traffic issues in a local area. It is a holistic approach that carefully considers existing traffic/parking requirements and plans for the future needs of the area. The process generally takes up to twelve months, involving analysis of traffic and parking data, community engagement, development of options, and Council endorsement of final projects to be undertaken. Outcomes are aligned with Council strategies and developed based on the following principles:

  • Ensure an effective network for all modes of transport
  • Encourage walking and cycling as methods of transport
  • Manage parking across the city to maximise its availability

In order to achieve this, the outcomes of a LATM study include installation of physical devices to influence vehicle behaviour (i.e. raised intersections, road humps), traffic controls (turning restrictions, intersection priority changes), streetscape treatments, and parking controls.


Why are we undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management study in this area?

Council has developed a program of LATM studies across the City of Unley. LATM has already occurred in Wayville, Unley and Parkside through this program, and your area was considered the next highest priority. Common concerns raised in the area include:

  • Speeding, traffic volume and traffic safety issues,
  • non-local traffic ‘rat-running’ through the area,
  • difficulty crossing particular roads.


What do we intend to do?

The ‘local area’ under consideration includes Clarence Park, as well as sections of Millswood, Goodwood and Wayville west of Goodwood Road. Based on the concerns we have already received from the community, we already have a partial understanding of what the community would like to see improved. In addition to this, our Walking and Cycling Plan provides several recommendations for the area. Based on this, we have developed a number of projects to investigate further as part of the LATM study. Please refer to the plan under Document Library for the potential projects identified.


Feedback required from residents and businesses

We seek feedback on the projects and areas of concern already identified, as well as additional improvements you would like to see considered. An online survey is available below for you to provide feedback. Feedback can be provided until Monday 17 September 2018.
