Cost

2014/15 - $128,000 for Stage 1

2015/16 - $115,000 for Stage 2

Outcomes

An evaluation of traffic treatments conducted in October 2015 revealed significant improvements to traffic conditions in the area.

Vehicles are now travelling at lower speeds on all streets where treatments were installed, with speeds considered to be within an acceptable range.

The number of vehicles travelling on Brougham Street, Charles Street, Charlotte Street, Coppin Street, Elm Grove and Newry Street has also decreased.

Notably, Coppin Street (a major north/south connection) saw a 3.5% drop in traffic volume and a 26% decrease in speed.

Due to improved ‘one way’ signage on Mary Street, the number of vehicles travelling in the wrong direction dropped from 25 vehicles per day down to 4.

The complete stage 1 review can be found in the following document.
