Traffic Calming Devices

Council monitors traffic movements throughout the city and may look at installing traffic calming devices and other forms of road safety treatments on the local street network (where warranted), as a means of increasing road and pedestrian safety to manage local traffic conditions and the inappropriate use of streets by motorists. Significant community consultation will be undertaken with residents before any traffic calming measures are installed.
