Welcome to the Shoalhaven City Council's Traffic and Transport Unit.
The role of Council’s Traffic & Transport Unit is to:
Provide a service to our external and internal customers regarding traffic and transport enquiries and through the provision of traffic management and safety improvements to the local road network within resource and budget constraints
Prepare strategies for traffic, transport, pedestrian & cyclist safety improvements and road safety programs
Arrange the implementation of approved programs and works relating to traffic, transport, pedestrian & cyclist safety improvements and road safety programs
Support and operate the Shoalhaven Traffic Committee
Assist Council's Strategic Planning in regards to the planning of future traffic and transport impacts associated with Structure Plans, LEP, DCPs and Contributions Plan
Assist Council's Development & Environmental Services Group, through the Strategic Planning Group DA Coordinator in regards to the review of development applications to ensure appropriate conditions are imposed that will protect the integrity (safety & efficiency) of the local road network.
As this site is improved over time our aim is to provide important easy to access information that will be available to the public on a broad range of traffic and road safety issues, including relevant information on our current works and programs.
Council’s Road Safety Officer (RSO) is a key member of the broader Traffic & Transport Unit and the RSO is an important link between state government road safety policy and what happens in the Shoalhaven.
The role of the Road Safety Officer is primarily to develop and implement local road safety activities, with particular focus on behavioural change programs.
Today more than ever we all have a role to play in road safety. The Shoalhaven in particular experiences significant fluctuations in traffic and parking demands throughout the year (significant increases in demand during holiday periods). The road network in our city affects each and every one of us.
The Road Safety Officer, as part of the dedicated Traffic & Transport team at Shoalhaven City Council, works tirelessly to develop programs to improve the level of safety and awareness on our roads.
For more information you can contact the Road Safety Officer on (02) 4429 3484, or the Traffic Unit for general enquiries on (02) 4429 3625.
