As a key action identified in the Integrated Transport Strategy, Moorabool Shire 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.
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 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 Social Pinpoint interactive map.
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.
