Lewisham - improving safety and calming traffic


Background


In December 2015, Council invited the community to complete a survey about walking, cycling and driving in Lewisham. The information received was used to develop a draft plan to:

  • improve road safety for pedestrians, cyclists, motorcycle riders and drivers;
  • calm traffic and improve access for pedestrians and cyclists, and
  • manage changing traffic needs over the next ten years.

What's happening now?

The draft plan is now on public exhibition. It has been developed using information from:

  • responses to a community survey distributed to 1552 local residents and business in 2015
  • the Imagining Marrickville Community Survey in 2014
  • ongoing correspondence from the community about issues in Lewisham
  • a review of traffic volumes, vehicle speeds, heavy vehicle use and crash statistics in the area
