Roads and traffic management projects

The City receives many requests from residents, motorists, Ward Councillors and elected members to assess traffic and road safety issues on the local roads we are responsible for managing.

All requests are assessed under the City’s Traffic Management Warrants Policy. This policy allows requests to be prioritised based on a range of safety and amenity factors including traffic volumes, travel speeds, crash history, road geometry, road users and activity generators.

This method is considered to be best practice for determining the need for traffic management measures in a fair and transparent manner.

By following a consistent method of assessing road and traffic-related requests, we can ensure that the City’s limited funding resources are allocated to the highest priority projects.

What does the City seek feedback on?

When a road is assessed as meeting the warrants for a traffic management upgrade, the City develops a concept proposal to address the identified issues. Before finalising the design, the City seeks feedback from the owners and residents of properties located on the section of road that is proposed to be upgraded.

While feedback from the wider community is considered as part of this process, only the feedback from those owners and residents most impacted by the proposed installation of the traffic calming devices, and who have been contacted by mail, will determine the final outcome.

If you have received a letter about a proposed traffic management project and would like to provide your input, please complete the submission form located at the bottom of the relevant project page by the specified closing date.

The City of Stirling is responsible for the management of more than 1,000 km of roads. If put together end-to-end, they would make a road stretching from Perth to beyond Carnarvon!
