Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The Byron Road Precinct Traffic Management Study has been included in the current budget approved last Monday night.

I look forward to this study as this is one of the first issues that was made known to me by residents and rate payers, after taking the decision to run for council. As I walked the footpaths campaigning back in October of 2009 this was a concern often put to me.

Once complete we will have a better understanding of what issues are present in this precinct. We will then be better placed to do something constructive to make this and adjacent roads safer.

I have already spoken with our Acting Manager Traffic about how we go about this and that we should include traffic congestion in Forest Avenue around school drop off and pick up time.
