Improving Mills Street

As a result of my engagement with residents around Frederick Street re the Kelvin Avenue Pocket Park issues with the intersection with Mills Street and East Avenue have been identified.

The access/egress at this intersection is testing according to some of you were raised by some residents and I can say I have experienced this as well. Inevitably there is only one line of cars expecting to turn into East Avenue, particularly if there is a car parked adjacent the crossover into the mechanics yard.
Also raised was the fact that the no left turn sign for Millswood Crescent is hidden by a tree.
I am happy to report that additional line marking in Mills Street has been scheduled for installation; together with an extra no left turn sign into Millswood Crescent.
This should improve dramatically access/egress from/into East Avenue with Mills Street.

Thank you to those residents who provide me this feedback. I am happy to be able to facilitate positive results to a situation that had until now gone unnoticed by Council.

After much liaison with the Department of Infrastructure, Energy & Infrastructure (DTEI) by Council Staff I can also report that they (DTEI) have assessed the proposal we have been putting to them and have just advised that it supports our proposal to replace the angled slow point in front of No 21 with a plateau with no other changes to the existing traffic devices ( a usual pre-requisite to changing traffic calming devices). Construction will be able to commence following community notification.
