Churchlands Green Traffic Management
Open for consultation until 5.00pm Tuesday 10 March 2020
Residents of Churchlands Green are invited to provide comments on the future management of vehicle movements in the local area.
In 2019 residents were asked to comment on a proposal to address some traffic management issues in the subdivision at Churchlands Green.
The City received a wide range of feedback on the matter which involved the right turn opening from Empire Avenue to Cromarty Road.
In addition to the feedback received and in order to better understand the situation, we also expanded our traffic data collection to monitor and collect information on vehicle movements throughout the area.
Our data shows that traffic levels in the area have steadily increased and have almost reached the desired maximum for local roads. In order to ensure the roads do not exceed their planned capacity, we are seeking your views on some road design options as the starting point of the conversation.
We are also interested in hearing if you have any ideas for alternative options.
The survey will provide local based information to inform how the City will progress future traffic management in this area.

Why is the City looking at doing this?
For some time, residents of Churchlands Green have made the City of aware of an increase in ‘rat running’ through these local streets. This is the second phase of an investigation into what the best course of action is to solve this problem.
What was the outcome of the consultation in 2019?
We received overwhelming support from City of Stirling residents for the right turn opening at Empire Avenue and Cromarty Road.
This issue also impacts Town of Cambridge residents who indicated 50% support but Cromarty residents opposed the idea by 96%.
Has the City already decided on which option will be used?
No. We have prepared two options but are open to all views from the public. Ultimately the City will consider views from residents, impacts on residential amenity and technical requirements.
What will happen after consultation?
We will compile all the submissions and make a determination on an outcome that will best address the problem.
