Local Area Traffic Management
Council takes road safety very seriously and works closely with peak bodies like the TAC, VicRoads and the RACV to ensure safe travel for all road users.
The installation of Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) measures which include treatments such as; roundabouts, angled slow points, traffic islands, raised safety platforms and speed cushions are often installed to address road safety issues like speeding or poor visibility.
To ensure the available budgets are allocated effectively, we prioritise the installation of any traffic calming treatments based on the level of risk to road users. This level of risk is calculated taking into account the following factors:
- Traffic volume
- Traffic speeds
- The percentage of heavy vehicles using the street
- Activity generators in the area such as schools, playgrounds and shops
- The causality crash history at the site over the past five years
- The intended function of the road (i.e. whether the road is a local street, or a street between local streets and arterial roads)
Council has several new projects planned for delivery in the near future and we are currently seeking feedback from residents in these areas.
For any feedback on the current projects below, please email Council at LATM@cgd.vic.gov.au.
