Dudley Park, Devon Park and Croydon Park Local Area Traffic Management Plan Development
Due to the completed Torrens Road to River Torrens Project and current Regency Road to Pym Street Project (R2P), there have been significant changes to the operation of the local road network in Dudley Park, Devon Park and Croydon Park.
An upcoming change in 2020 is that the final design for Pym Street will only allow left in/left out on both sides of South Road with no east-west through-movement. This will result in traffic redistribution in the local area and changes to bus routes.
The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure recently funded a study to assess the anticipated impacts of the R2P Project on the City of Port Adelaide Enfield’s local road network. This study identified that some roads will experience a significant increase or decrease in traffic volume.
Accordingly, the council has committed to developing a draft Local Area Traffic Management Plan (LATM Plan), for further consultation with residents.
A community meeting was held in November 2019 and subsequently, a Street Resident Committee was formed. The committee consists of a small group of local residents and businesses, with support from the City of Port Adelaide Enfield and the R2P Alliance. The committee will meet over the coming months to develop a draft LATM Plan for further consultation with the local communities.
The LATM Plan will address potential changes to traffic flows in Dudley Park, Devon Park and Croydon Park as a result of the R2P Project. If the predicted changes come to fruition, the LATM Plan will be implemented in stages with the majority of works to be undertaken following the completion of the project.
The LATM Plan applies to the area bound by Regency Road, Days Road, Torrens Road and the railway line. Council will work with the City of Charles Sturt on this LATM Plan, as the southwestern corner falls under its care and control. (See – Location Map)
