  • Residents of Monmouth street would be astonished to discover, from the ¨current¨ traffic volume map in your report, that they have a daily vehicle movement in their street of between 1,000 and 3,000 per day. This might have been true before the traffic calming devices were installed following the Tonkin Report of 2009, but it´s impossible to believe the estimation which the your draft report of 2015 claims, at least for anyone who has some knowledge of the street. Even harder to square with reality is the suggestion that Second street between West and Chief streets carries a similar traffic load - or that Coglin street between Port road and the outer harbour railway is a local road, but between First street and Second, it too carries a vehicle average of between 1,000 and 3,000 per day. In this case, both things can´t be true. What gives? Have you actually measured current traffic volumes anywhere in the study area in preparing your report? Or is the report just telling us what volume of traffic you require our streets to carry, whatever the reality is at the moment. If so, why not just say so, and save us all the confusion and ratepayer expense?

    There appears to be an error with the map. There has been no data collection in Monmouth Street and volumes are expected to be well below 1000 vehicles per day. It appears that the consultant has treated Monmouth Street as part of Second Street which, immediately east of Wood Avenue, carries 1200 vehicles per day.

    The map in Appendix A represents estimates of current (2015) traffic volumes.

    To inform the IWPTPP traffic data was available for approximately 40 streets in the Precinct. Many of the streets for which data has not been collected are minor local streets which are expected to carry below 500 vehicles per day.
