Proposed Safety Initiatives for Percy Street Portland between Tyers Street and Wade Street

Glenelg Shire Council is commencing Stakeholder Consultation for the proposed design works to improve safety along Percy Street between Tyers Street and Wade Street. Once the initial design is completed council will seek funding for the implementation works.

We invite stakeholders to provide comment to assist the initial design works that may include:

• A central raised median on Percy Street between Tyers Street and Fern Street. This will separate the two way traffic and restrict drivers from undertaking unsafe movements such as U-turns and overtaking. The raised median will provide a refuge for pedestrians and lighting.

• Changes to existing line marking in between Fern Street and Wade Street to provide single lane two way traffic and intersection turning treatments.

• A review of the speed limit along Percy Street between Tyres Street and Fern Street to possibly reduce the speed from 60kmph to 50kmph.

• Local area traffic management devices such as kerb stands.

A Stakeholder Consultation drop in session will be held at the Portland Library on the Tuesday 20 August 2019 from 12pm to 2pm.

If you are unable to attend the Community Consultation drop in session and would like to provide feedback, please visit the Your Say Glenelg website yoursay.glenelg.vic.gov.au and complete the online feedback form by 5pm Friday 23 August 2019.
