Keysborough South Local Area Traffic Management Projects

Keysborough South Road

Council takes road safety very seriously and works closely with peak bodies like the TAC, Department of Transport 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.

Councils Local Area Traffic Management Program prioritises funding to the locations where the greatest road safety risk is identified.

A number of roads within Keysborough South have been identified as priority locations for works under this program due to:

  • High traffic volumes
  • High traffic speeds
  • High volumes of heavy vehicles using local streets
  • Proximity of the above to activity generators in the area such as schools, playgrounds and shops
  • Accident history at some locations

Council have received concerns from a number of residents within the area relating to these issues.

To improve road safety within the Keysborough area, Council is proposing to install traffic calming treatments within the Keysborough area. These treatments will focus on:

  • Reducing vehicles speeds on Perry Road
  • Reducing truck traffic on Perry Road
  • Reducing speeds on Westwood Boulevard and Church Road
  • Reducing speeds as vehicles enter Princeton Drive (from Springvale Road)
  • Reducing vehicle speeds along the length of Lakeview Boulevard, including as vehicles enter from Cheltenham Road
  • Acknowledging potentially high volumes of pedestrians in the Keysborough area

While other streets in the area also experience some road safety issues, the locations addressed by these proposed treatments are where the greatest road safety risks have been identified. This has been informed through traffic surveys and reviews of accident statistics.

Plans and concept designs of the proposed treatments within the Keysborough South area can be viewed below:
