Proposed Raised Intersection Treatments - Belmore Terrace, Woodville

We have previously consulted with residents on various options for intersection treatments along Belmore Terrace, Woodville/Woodville Park. Most recently, in June-July 2019, we consulted with you on a proposal for raised modified-T junctions.

During the consultation period, the following key themes were presented:

  • Improved traffic flow along Belmore Terrace
  • Concerns that traffic volumes in streets intersecting with Belmore Terrace will increase as a result of a modified-T arrangement
  • Preference for a standard raised intersection treatment

It is noted that the concept design for raised modified-T junctions gives provision for simultaneous two-way traffic through the intersection, which is not currently provided. It was also noted that the existing modified-T arrangement is being retained and the new design is not expected to have significant impacts on traffic volumes in Belmore Terrace or adjoining streets.

A report presenting the outcomes of this consultation was put to the Asset Management Committee on 19 August 2019, at which they resolved:

1. That the report be received and noted.

2. That Council notes the results of Stages 1, 2 and 3 of community engagement, undertaken in August-September 2018, February 2019 and June-July 2019, seeking community feedback on various treatment options for the intersections of Belmore Terrace/Hughes Street North, Belmore Terrace/Park Street North, and Belmore Terrace/Dale Street.

3. That Council notes the feedback received in response to the concept plan shown in Appendix D being raised modified-T junctions at the intersections of Belmore Terrace/Hughes Street North, Belmore Terrace/Park Street North, and Belmore Terrace/Dale Street.

4. That having regard to the key concerns raised by the community throughout all three stages of community engagement and previous Motions of the Outer Harbor Greenway Review, detailed design of the raised modified-T junctions be progressed.

5. That the residents within the engagement catchment area be notified of Council’s decision.

This was endorsed by full Council on 26 August 2019.

We will now be progressing with detailed design of the intersections, with construction expected to commence early next year. We will contact you again once this has been finalised to advise you of the timing of works.

We are working with the community members who currently maintain the planting area within Belmore Terrace, to relocate the existing plants to suitable locations for the duration of construction works. This will likely involve a combination of plants being moved to alternative locations along the rail corridor, along with some plants being temporarily potted. This is likely to occur over the coming months, to give the plants the best chance for survival, rather than relocating them in the summer months immediately prior to construction.

A community planting day will be held following the completion of construction works, at which you will have an opportunity to participate in replanting the garden beds at the intersection of Belmore Terrace and Park Street North. We will contact you again once the date of this community planting day is known to invite you along.

    Belmore Terrace in Woodville and Woodville Park is a local road that runs parallel to the Outer Harbor railway line between Woodville Road and David Terrace, although access to Belmore Terrace is prohibited at Woodville Road.

    Belmore Terrace also forms part of the Outer Harbor Greenway that is a strategic walking and cycling route which generally runs along the alignment of the Outer Harbor Railway line between the Adelaide CBD and Outer Harbor.

    Belmore Terrace currently contains a series of traffic controls (driveway entry links) at the following intersections:

    • Belmore Terrace / Hughes Street North

    Belmore Terrace in Woodville and Woodville Park is a local road that runs parallel to the Outer Harbor railway line between Woodville Road and David Terrace, although access to Belmore Terrace is prohibited at Woodville Road.

    Belmore Terrace also forms part of the Outer Harbor Greenway that is a strategic walking and cycling route which generally runs along the alignment of the Outer Harbor Railway line between the Adelaide CBD and Outer Harbor.

    Belmore Terrace currently contains a series of traffic controls (driveway entry links) at the following intersections:

    • Belmore Terrace / Hughes Street North
    • Belmore Terrace / Park Street North
    • Belmore Terrace / Dale Street

    These traffic controls are due for renewal in 2019/20, which presents an opportunity to review the design to ensure they are the most appropriate option moving forward, rather than simply replacing the driveway entry links, which have the potential to cause conflicts with cyclists/pedestrians and cars when using the greenway.

    Several options were looked at, considering the needs of cyclists to facilitate increased cycling activity along the corridor and adjoining land uses, it was determined that raised intersection treatments are the most appropriate option at the locations mentioned above.

    Engagement Overview

    Community engagement was undertaken with local residents and surrounding streets with a concept plan mailed out to 703 residents and ratepayers showing the proposed raised intersections and inviting written submissions to the proposal. We also door knocked and met with residents and business owners who reside at the intersections to get a better understanding of the current use and issues.

    The consultation was opened from 21 August to 12 September 2018 where we received 19 responses to the proposal. Of those we had 10 written submissions online and 9 discussions face to face and over the phone.

    During our interactions and conversation with the community it was identified specifically at the Belmore/Park Street North intersection that some parking will be lost. There were also concerns raised in relation to the noise that the proposed pattern paved treatment surface may produce when cars travel over it.

    Overall the submissions received identified that a majority (11) supported the upgrade to the current traffic device to the raised intersection treatment.

    Consultation Outcome

    Following positive feedback from the community we have amended the concept plan to now reflect that two parking spaces in front of the shops at 22 Belmore Terrace will remain. The raised intersection treatment road surface will remain as asphalt until we further consult in 2019 with directly affected residents to determine the type of material or artwork that may be suitable.

    We are currently finalising the detailed design of these intersections, with a request for funding to be submitted for construction in the 2019/20 financial year.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who took the time to view the concept plan and provide feedback. Your participation is very much appreciated.
