Council’s traffic consultants PeopleTrans have completed a traffic study reviewing the impacts of the traffic signals at the intersection of Mowbray Road West/Beaconsfield Rd and reviewing the traffic changes for Mowbray Road proposed by Lane Cove Council in conjunction with redevelopment activity on their side of Mowbray Road.
One of the key issues examined by the consultants was the issue of perceived increases in traffic on Dalrymple Avenue and Coolaroo Road since the signals at Mowbray Road/Beaconsfield Road were introduced. The consultants have found that banning right turns out of Beaconsfield Road “has not resulted in significant traffic increases in local roads to the north of Mowbray Road West”. The consultants also found that the signals had not resulted in an appreciable deterioration in traffic conditions on Mowbray Road West. The only notable increase in traffic has been identified as being on Coolaroo Road, west of Greenlands Avenue where there has been an increase in traffic of 35 vehicles (almost all in an eastbound direction).
The consultant’s report goes to Council on Monday 1st September at 6 PM, Banksia Room, Level 6 in the Council Building, Victor St. You have the right to speak at this meeting.
