How can we continue to manage and improve safety around Tempe South?

A condition for approving the development application for a new Bunnings Warehouse at 728-750 Princes Highway, is to identify how we maintain and improve safety for bike riders, pedestrians, and vehicles in the area. These proposals will be finalised as a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Plan.

Study Area

The LATM study area consists of: Barden Street, Edwin Street, Fanning Street, Foreman Street, Hart Street, Holbeach Avenue, Smith Street, South Street, Stanley Street, Station Street, Tramway Street, Union Street, Wentworth Street and Zuitton Lane.

Review the proposals

The proposals have been informed by the community’s concerns during the development application process. The priority is to slow vehicles down which may deter non-local traffic by extending travel times to pass through the area. Review the proposals by street:

Whilst we have tried to explain each proposal in plain language, in some instances technical language was unavoidable. Review the Glossary of Technical Terms (6.06MB, docx).
