Thinking of local traffic management while enjoying wonderful coffee at the famous, always busy Froth & Fodder cafe in Mortimer St Kurralta Park this morning. (My boy not as happy to have his photo taken!) #supportlocal
Right near the end of my last term of Council in 2018 we had agreed on details of a concept plan for this part of Mortimer St to slow traffic on this busy and sometimes dangerous corner. I lived on Mortimer Street for 6 years before moving to Keswick so know this area very well.
The road was supposed to have a ‘paved’ finish in the new roadway, where the road is narrowed. (See pic in the comments) This was to give a boulevard effect to slow the passing traffic. For some reason unfortunately this was not followed through with when the work was done. This part of the new road was part of a trial of using old printer toner cartridges as part of the pavement mix. While a great environmental trial, it could have done elsewhere in the council area.
We need to be innovative in our traffic management solutions to get the desired results of slowed traffic.
Vote  Farnden this election for someone that will work on innovative traffic management and follow through with Council Administration to ensure it actually happens.
(Does your favoured candidate live in the ward? It matters because we know our area intimately and can work with locals on local solutions)
