Have your say about road safety and traffic management in Manningham, Hampstead Gardens, Hillcrest and Gilles Plains.
This is an opportunity to help shape a Local Area Traffic Management Plan (LATM) for the area.
This is the first community engagement stage where we ask for your feedback and outline the process involved in creating a LATM for 5086.
As part of our ongoing commitment to making our streets safer and improving our local community, we have kicked off an ambitious Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study for the suburbs of Manningham, Hampstead Gardens, Hillcrest and Gilles Plains (which we’re referring to collectively as 5086 throughout this consultation).
Please refer to the Document Library (on the right) for an overview map of the study area.
The study area is bounded by:
- North East Road to the South
- In the case of Manningham and Hampstead Gardens, the area is bounded by Hampstead Road to the west; and Muller Road to the north
- In the case of Hillcrest, the area is bounded by Fosters Road to the west; Lord Howe Avenue, Oxford Street and Bristol Terrace to the north; and Blacks Road to the east
- In the case of Gilles Plains, the area is bounded by Sudholz Road to the west; Grand Junction Road to the north; and Wandana Avenue
The LATM study is being undertaken as part of Council’s LATM program. The LATM program is aimed at improving local traffic, pedestrian and parking issues. Common concerns raised in the area include:
- speeding, traffic volume and traffic safety issues,
- non-local traffic ‘rat-running’ through the area,
- difficulty crossing particular roads.
How can you participate?
We would like to invite you to share your traffic related experiences or concerns on your street and within the study area with us.
Please click the survey link on the blue button above.
Please complete one questionnaire per household (either the hard copy in your mailbox OR this online version). All representations will be considered.
Please lodge your feedback by 19 April 2021.
Resident Advisory Group
We will form a local advisory group to ensue community views are included throughout the project.
This small group would consist of residents/stakeholders with local knowledge of traffic issues within the study area.
It is expected that each suburb would have a fair number of representatives based on their size and any complex issues.
The group will assist us with the developing a the Local Area Traffic Management plan.
If you are interested in becoming part of the group, please ensure that you tick ‘Yes’ for question 4 of the Questionnaire form before submitting it, or email us your interest separately via firstname.lastname@example.org.

Data relating to traffic volumes and speeds, vehicle crashes, extent of property subdivision, housing density growth, public and community bus networks, footpath network and locations of local activity centres (retail precincts and schools) is available on interactive maps here.
Alternatively, please refer to the static maps in the Document Library (top right of this page).
The above image shows crash frequencies in the area - the size of the red "hot spots" correspond to a greater amount of crashes.
