Attwood and Westmeadows (East): Local Area Traffic Management Study - Stage 2

Consultation has concluded

Keeping Attwood and Westmeadows (East) on the move

As part of Hume City Council’s ongoing commitment to Local Area Traffic Management (LATM), Council undertook a study of traffic issues within the Attwood and Westmeadows (East) Area bounded by Mickleham Road, Broadmeadows Deviation Road, Ripplebrook Drive and the vacant land under the flight path of Melbourne Airport's east/west runway.

In July 2020, Council sought community input into the LATM via an online mapping tool to identify areas for consideration or improvement. More than 410 responses were received from the community. This feedback has been reviewed and used to form the basis of a proposed traffic management plan to address the issues raised by the community. In addition to community input, the study has considered:

  • Traffic speeds and volumes
  • Casualty crashes
  • Pedestrian and cycling connectivity
  • Parking issues.

Council is proposing to install traffic treatments as shown on the Proposed Traffic Management Plan. These proposals are preliminary, and before Council makes any decisions on the treatments, we would like to hear your we would like to hear your opinions on what is being proposed.

Local Area Traffic Management Study Process:

  1. Seek community feedback on traffic issues within the Attwood and Westmeadows (East) LATM Area (completed)
  2. Investigate and develop a draft plan to address the issues (completed)
  3. Share the draft plan with the local community (will also be available online) for feedback (now)

Note: Funding of up to $200,000 has been proposed in the 2021/22 Council budget to commence implementation of actions. Projects that are beyond the scope of this initial funding will be considered for future funding under Council’s Capital Works Program.
