Thanks to all residents who have so far provided their input into the project, to assist Council in identifying the key traffic issues within Stage 4 study area in Darley. We are now better placed to make informed recommendations on what is required to make the area safe for drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.

Provide Your Feedback

Moorabool Shire Council is undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study within a precinct of Darley, to improve traffic management and road safety within the area.

The Bacchus Marsh Integrated Transport Strategy (BMITS) presents the vision for the transport network for Bacchus Marsh and identifies the need to undertake LATM studies in order to manage the traffic impacts on local roads.

Council has engaged SALT, a multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy firm, to undertake a review of the traffic, parking and safety issues within the area and assist with the study. Community participation is essential in identifying and addressing issues of this nature and in preparing an LATM Plan. As such, Council is seeking your input regarding traffic issues in your area.

The study area for this stage extends from the north of Albert Street to Pamela Court and is bounded by the Lerderderg River to the east, as outlined below.

The LATM study will examine the existing traffic, parking and road safety issues, together with information received through the attached survey questionnaire, discussions with Council officers and the collection of traffic volume and speed data.
