McCormicks Precinct Local Area Traffic Management Study

Frankston City Council is undertaking a Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) study of the McCormicks Precinct as part of its ongoing Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) program.  Council has been undertaking LATMs in selected precincts within the municipality in order to manage vehicle movements, improve safety and improve amenity.

The study area is bounded by Frankston-Dandenong Road, Hall Road, Wedge Road, and the vacant land adjacent to Taylors Road.

LATM Study Process

Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) is a study process which:

  • Investigates traffic conditions in local streets of a precinct,
  • Involves the community in identifying issues and developing solutions,
  • Considers the impacts of traffic management on an area-wide basis, and
  • Aims to improve amenity.

    LATM recognises that streets serve many functions, such as:

  • Providing for vehicle and pedestrian access to properties,
  • Providing for the safe movement of vehicles within and through an area,
  • Providing space for social interaction within a neighbourhood, and
  • Providing access for emergency and service vehicles.

Community Participation

Community participation is essential in identifying existing traffic issues in your local area, and there are multiple ways to contribute to outcomes of this study. Please note that due to the ongoing restrictions and uncertainty associated with Covid-19, no face-to-face community engagement activities can be undertaken at this time.

All community members who have ideas, thoughts or concerns relating to traffic, road safety, pedestrian or cyclist issues, are strongly encouraged to get involved in one of the following ways:

  • Provide your feedback and input via Social Pinpoint, a location based interactive mapping tool (available on both PC and mobile) prior to 8th February 2021. Via the link here: https://frankston.mysocialpinpoint.com/mccormickslatm#/ (or use the QR code below).
  • Complete the attached questionnaire and return it to Frankston City Council’s Engineering Services Department by 8th February 2021 using the enclosed ‘Reply Paid’ envelope or scanning and emailing to EngServices@frankston.vic.gov.au.
  • Attend the Virtual Community Meeting, to be held via Zoom (a web-based meeting program) at 6:30pm on Wednesday 20th January 2021. At the meeting you will have the opportunity to provide your input on local street issues and suggestions for improvements.
  • Nominate to be part of the Resident Traffic Committee comprised of interested residents. The group will meet up to 3 occasions and will be important in steering the study outcomes. Please email EngServices@frankston.vic.gov.au to register your interest.

Registration is essential to nominate for the Resident Traffic Committee and to receive the web-based link to attend the virtual community meeting.

Resident Traffic Committee

The study includes an extensive community consultation process to involve the local community in identifying traffic issues and provide opportunities for community feedback on the developed traffic proposals.  The community consultation process has included the formation of a traffic study group comprising community volunteers and Council officers.

The role of community volunteers will be to provide local information, act as a contact for the local community and to provide feedback in the development of traffic management plans for the area.

Feedback

The initial community consultation phase is underway, and closes on 8th February 2021.

All community members who have ideas, thoughts or concerns relating to traffic, road safety, pedestrian or cyclist issues, are strongly encouraged to provide feedback.

Next Steps

The project team will start gathering community feedback, continue technical investigations into the various traffic issues in the area with regard for traffic data, crash data and specific community comments.

A Virtual Community Meeting will be held via Zoom (a web-based meeting program) at 6:30pm on Wednesday 20th January 2021.  At the meeting you will have the opportunity to provide your input on local street issues and suggestions for improvements.

A Resident Traffic Committee will be formed comprising of interested residents. The group will be important in steering the study outcomes, and ensuring that the community’s traffic concerns are adequately addressed.

A draft traffic management plan will be formulated to address the identified issues with input from the Resident Traffic Committee.

The draft Traffic Management Plan will then be circulated to all properties in the study area for with a questionnaire to receive the community’s feedback in April/May 2021.
