Council has a continuing commitment to improve road safety within the municipality and this commitment is reflected in our support of the Victorian Road Safety Strategy. This strategy is designed to keep Victoria at the forefront of Australian and international efforts to reduce road trauma, to deliver continuing improvements to the road transport system, and to improve safety for all Victorian road users.

There has been local support in the past requesting traffic calming in Heathmont Road, Heathmont. Funds have been allocated for the 2017/18 financial year for the construction of traffic calming in Heathmont Road. The works will also include the renewal of the kerb and asphalt surface along Heathmont Road, from Wainui Avenue to Great Ryrie Street.

Traffic study

There has been a detailed traffic study of three of the Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) treatments following queries raised by residents during consultation on the LATM concept design drafted by GTA Consultants. The following treatments were examined:

  • proposed realignment of the intersection of Balfour Avenue with Heathmont Road
  • two pedestrian refuges near Edith Street and Edna Street
  • proposed realignment of the intersection of Wainui Avenue with Heathmont Road.

The traffic study examined the treatments proposed within the concept design, the site constraints, different treatment options and provided a recommended option for each treatment.
