Have your say on the Bacchus Marsh Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Study; Stage 2
Thanks to the more than 200 responses we received online and in hard copy, our consultants can now make informed recommendations on what is needed to make the area safe for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists. A report will be prepared and considered by Council in the coming months
As a key action identified in the Integrated Transport Strategy and following the adoption of the Stage 1 Plan (Precincts A and B), Moorabool Shire Council is undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study within a further area (Precinct C) of Bacchus Marsh in order to manage the traffic impacts and road safety on local roads within the area.
A review of the traffic, parking and safety issues within the area is being undertaken to assist with the study and community participation is essential in identifying and addressing issues of this nature. As such, Council is seeking resident’s input regarding traffic issues. The study area for Stage 2 is generally bound by Main and Fisken Streets, and the Werribee River and Korkuperrimul Creek.
The LATM study will examine the existing traffic, parking and road safety issues, together with information received from residents, discussions with officers and the collection of traffic volume and speed data. Council is seeking feedback from the Bacchus Marsh community on traffic and parking issues, including:
- Traffic speed and irresponsible driving
- Lack of traffic calming devices/infrastructure
- Increased through traffic
- Pedestrian/cyclist safety
- Heavy vehicles
Residents are strongly encouraged to complete the community questionnaire and add feedback to the interactive map available here by the closing date of 22 October 2018.
Your feedback will assist Council in identifying the key traffic issues within the area, as well as validating some of the issues previously raised, so that an effective traffic management scheme can be developed.
