Traffic management update:  Traffic management is one of the major issues RAID has been raising with the City of Melbourne Officers and Councillors, in particular Cr Oke, in relation to the Woolworths site and the Haines/Shiel Street developments.

The following update is taken from the CoM website (19/8/16) and identifies the measures supported by the CoM.  A link at the end takes you to a map where the traffic calming measures apply.  Refer to the CoM site for this and further updates: http://www.melbourne.vic.gov.au/parking-and-transport/cycling/Pages/cycling-lanes-and-routes.aspx

 

Residents have expressed concerns over the possible impact on residential amenity from the proposed North Melbourne Woolworths development site, both during its construction and following its completion. City of Melbourne has a number of measures either in place or planned to mitigate the impact.

The following traffic management measures are proposed in the vicinity of the Woolworths site:

  • traffic calming treatments in Shiel Street, subject to the support by the residents in the street
  • raised pedestrian crossings in Haines Street and Shiel Street at the Haines Street / Shiel Street / Dryburgh Street roundabout
  • 40 km/h speed limit in Shiel Street and Haines Street
  • extension of the 40 km/h speed limit in Melrose Street to whole of street
  • upgrade of the existing bicycle lane in Haines Street between Dryburgh Street and Errol Streets
  • improved two-way bicycle connection from Macaulay Road to Canning Street
  • proposed bicycle lane east of Buncle Street.

A number of traffic management measures and bicycle works have recently been installed and are proposed in the North Melbourne area. View the map of traffic calming measures in North Melbourne (PDF 561 KB).
