Traffic Plan Rejected By Community

Melton City Council is undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study of Diggers Rest as part of its ongoing LATM program.  The study area is bounded by Vineyard Road, Calder Freeway, Old Calder Highway, and Diggers Rest – Coimadai Road in Diggers Rest.

A Proposed Traffic Management Plan that suggests possible traffic solutions has been developed for the study area.  The Plan aims to address the key issues identified by the community in August, 2013. The Proposed Plan is only preliminary at this stage, as the community is to help develop a final Plan.

At a meeting of the Cambridge Coburn and Watts Residents Association last week, Diggers Rest residents voiced concerns over what they see as a lack of consultation with the community and the possible number of speed humps that might be implemented.

What will be the next step in the Council process and will the residents be listened to?
