Background

Council has undertaken a traffic study in the south Marrickville precinct to investigate a one way westbound traffic flow proposal in Warren Road between Carrington and Illawarra Roads. The study also looked at other options to alleviate traffic congestion and improve road safety in Warren Road.


How was the study prepared?

The draft traffic study was developed using information from:

  • Traffic data collected from tube and intersection counts, including peak hour observations made between March and May 2019
  • Traffic accidents database from the Roads and Maritime Services (RMS)
  • A review of traffic volumes and speeds, including cars and trucks use in the area
