Updated - Have your say on the Bacchus Marsh Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Study; Stage 2

 

Update 19/12/2018 - Phase 2 Community Consultation

 

Council is undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study within a precinct of Bacchus Marsh in order to manage the traffic impacts and road safety on local roads within the area.

 

Recently, residents were asked to provide their input and assist in identifying the key traffic issues within the area, as well as validating some of the issues previously raised. From this feedback a draft LATM Plan has been prepared for further consultation with the community.

 

A copy of the draft plan is now available to view and residents are also able to provide comments on the proposed treatments via the interactive map available here until 5.00pm Tuesday 5 February 2019.

 

In addition to this, the following drop in sessions will be held, to allow residents to view the plan, ask questions and have conversations around the recommendations. Bookings are not required and residents can attend at any time during the sessions.

 

Session 1: Tuesday 22 January 2019

Previous Information

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
  • Parking
  • 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.
