Council has developed a draft Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) plan to address key concerns about traffic, pedestrian and cycling in the Petersham North Precinct. The area is bounded by West Street, Parramatta Road, Crystal Street and Terminus Street.

How was the plan prepared?

The plan has been developed using information from:

  • initial community consultation in May-June 2022
  • ongoing correspondence from the community about issues in the study area
  • a review of traffic volumes, vehicle speeds and crash statistics in the area

Overview of the draft LATM plan

The plan includes recommended treatments and changes at locations shown in the attached map. The draft plan proposes treatments including raised pedestrian crossings, kerb blisters, speed humps, a 10 km/h shared zone and a roundabout. See the overview below.

Proposal number 17 (pg. 48) Request TfNSW implement 40 km/h speed limit on Local Roads and 50 km/h speed limit on Regional Roads. This proposal will be part of an LGA wide engagement in the later part of this year.
