Following a traffic study in Kaleen in 2013-14 which involved the technical analyses of traffic data as well as community feedback, recommended priority 1 traffic management measures were installed on several streets (Maribyrnong Avenue, Ellenborough Street, Daintree Crescent and Onkaparinga Crescent) to mitigate concerns regarding speeding, pedestrian safety and intersection safety.
The treatments implemented include three pedestrian refuge islands, a channelised right turn lane and a raised pedestrian crossing on Maribyrnong Avenue, modifications to the roundabout at the intersection of Maribyrnong Avenue and Ellenborough Street, a pedestrian refuge island on Ellenborough Street and speed cushions on Daintree Crescent and Onkaparinga Crescent.

In early 2016, six months after the implementation of the priority 1 measures, the Kaleen traffic management scheme was evaluated to determine if the measures in place had achieved the stated objectives of reducing travelling speeds and increasing overall road safety. This evaluation included a technical analysis of traffic data and community consultation.
