How can we manage changing traffic conditions in the Balmain East and Birchgrove precinct?

Council is developing a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) plan to manage traffic and improve walking and cycling in the Birchgrove and Balmain East precinct. This study area is bounded by Robert Street, Mullens Street, Montague Street, Darling Street, Young Street, Glassop Street and Carieville Street

Local knowledge of walking, riding bikes and driving in the neighbourhood is highly valuable to this work. We would like to hear from schools, residents, business owners, visitors, and workers in the Balmain East and Birchgrove precinct. People living with a disability are encouraged to participate.

Aims of the Local Area Traffic Management plan

The plan will aim to:

  • Improve road safety for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists
  • Calm traffic and improve access for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Prioritise recommendations to improve amenity in the study area
