TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SCHEMES FOR EXISTING RESIDENTIAL STREET LAYOUTS ON THE GRID SYSTEM

The author looks at some of the area traffic schemes which were constructed and have been operating for a number of years in the Woodville council area and other councils in metropolitan Adelaide. The ultimate benefits and problems of the devices which have been installed, will be discussed and information will be presented about the accident reduction, public acceptance, improvement of residential qualities as well as the problems experienced by people living, or working or using the areas treated. An attempt is also made to evaluate some of the individual intersection treatments, and an investigation will be carried out into effectiveness of constructing only portion of the overall management plan for a residential area. Public relations problems experienced by council will also be touched on. Initial experience with the West Lakes development, where direct vehicle access onto arterial and collector roads has been eliminated, will be included in the paper. /Author/TRRL/
