Beauty Point traffic safety update

In its ongoing efforts to protect the safety and amenity of Beauty Point residents, Council has recently sought comments on a proposed Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) Scheme for the area. The scheme, designed by Council’s consultant, was also reviewed by the Local Traffic Committee and is based on the package of works that went to public consultation earlier in the year.

The Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) have agreed to provide funding for the design work and have formed a technical working group with staff, and subject to community feedback received on the scheme, it is hoped that progress can be made without any further delay. While funding for construction is yet to be confirmed, Council negotiations with the RMS are progressing positively.

The current timeline of the project is to finalise the detailed designs by end of January 2014 with construction to commence in March 2014, subject to funding. Council has also resolved to investigate the re-sealing of some concrete roads within the Beauty Point area in 2014/15 year. Questions regarding the proposed LATM scheme can
be directed to Council’s Traffic Section on 9978 4022 or 9978 4085.
