This consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who has participated. Feedback will now be collated to develop a draft Local Area Traffic Management Plan for further community consultation in October.

We're undertaking a study to understand and improve traffic congestion and road safety in the western end of Footscray.

What's the study?

A Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study is a process to identify existing traffic and road safety issues and develop recommendations to improve safety, access and amenity, deter through traffic, and encourage walking and cycling.

What's the study area?

The study area is bounded by Ballarat Road, Geelong Road, Cross Street, Warleigh Road, Barkly Street and Summerhill Road, as shown in the photo gallery on the right.

What's the process?

The first step in the LATM process is the identification of traffic and safety issues. This will be undertaken through the collection and analysis of data, together with information received from the community through the survey below and a concurrent letterbox drop of the area.

We will then go back out to the community and discuss the findings, and what traffic treatment options we can install or modify to improve the community's identified existing traffic issues.

See the project timeline and future engagement opportunities to the right of this page.
