Pedestrian and traffic improvement projects

We’re working on several key local area traffic management and pedestrian improvement projects in 2020/21 under the LATM (Local Area Traffic Management) and PAMP (Pedestrian Access and Mobility Plan) programs. These projects are at various stages of investigation, planning, design and/or construction this financial year.  For some projects, we need to undertake more consultation before designs are finalised.
