Traffic

Increasing amounts of motor vehicle traffic in residential streets is a major concern of residents. Moreland Council policies prioritise public transport, walking and cycling, but in reality not enough has been done to control increasing traffic. New multi-storey developments will make this problem worse.

In April 2011 we conducted a residents traffic survey completed by over 200 households in the Victoria to Albert streets precinct, in Brunswick and East Brunswick. Residents shared concerns on issues including traffic speed, traffic volume, and trucks using residential roads.

In August and September 2012 Council ordered traffic surveys at over 20 points in central Brunswick. The findings showed that residents were correct in saying that large amounts of traffic was going through residential streets, and that speeds (for narrow residential roads) were often high.

From December 2013 to January 2014 we carried out a second survey this time completed by over 400 households in the Victoria to Albert streets precinct, in Brunswick and East Brunswick. This surveyed  residents approved and priority options for traffic management.

    1. Thanks for your contribution. So do you mean two hours maximum for everyone, no special deal for residents?

    Hi all, I’m one of a number of Pascoe Vale South residents, who, in response to increasing congestion on street parking are calling for the installation of parking restrictions. I realise this is a Brunswick forum but hopefully you are also concerned for your fellow Morelander. So if you have the time please read and sign this petition:

    Thanks
