Have your say about road safety and traffic management in Klemzig, Windsor Gardens and Holden Hill.

We have now developed the draft Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) scheme and we would like your feedback.

In June 2021 we wrote to all residents and business owners in the study area seeking feedback on traffic-related issues in your street and across the suburb. We received over 550 feedback submissions. Members of the community told us about their observations on speeding, traffic volume, parking and other relevant matters.

First, we reviewed everyone’s feedback along with the technical data (including traffic counts and crash history). Next, we asked for nominations from residents across the study area to form a working group. Our aim in forming this working group was both to empower you and your local community and to bring local knowledge to the project.

The working group consisted of 12 members of the community, with 4 meetings held to develop the draft LATM scheme. This scheme aims to improve road safety and traffic management for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers throughout the study area.

Council at its May 2022 meeting endorsed the draft LATM plan. A copy of this report can be found in the documents library along with a summary of proposed treatments and a plan detailing the draft LATM scheme.

Next steps

At the end of the consultation period, we will consider all the feedback that we have received and then report it to Council at the August 2022 Council Meeting. Subject to endorsement of the draft scheme, further engagement will then occur with residents directly impacted by a proposed treatment. Here we will further work through any specific requirements which may need to be considered in the design and installation of the traffic control device.

Implementation of the LATM plan is expected to occur during the financial year 2022–23, subject to Council endorsement.
