Roads ACT's Traffic Warrant System (TWS) identifies the need for, and priority of, traffic management and road safety measures on residential streets. This system takes into consideration the traffic volume, traffic speed, crash history and land use of each street to provide a ranking for residential roads. Tillyard Drive in Charnwood, Flynn and Fraser ranks relatively high (ranks 11 between Ginninderra Drive and Kerrigan Street and ranks 20 between Kerrigan Street and Kuringa Drive) on the 2016 TWS.
The residents of Tillyard Drive and other road users have also written to members of the ACT Legislative Assembly and Roads ACT regarding their concerns about traffic volumes, speeding and other road safety and amenity issues on this street.
In November and December 2016, Roads ACT collected feedback about issues of concern from residents of Charnwood, Flynn and Fraser and the wider community.
Feedback received included 636 survey responses and 8 phone/written submissions, with 120 people attending the information sessions.
Areas of concern included:
Speeding and intersection safety were identified as requiring immediate solutions. Comments received also indicated that there is general support for the introduction of traffic management measures on Tillyard Drive and surrounding streets. To view the locations identified by the community as requiring immediate action view the Tillyard Drive Community Feedback Hotspots map (PDF 512KB).
The technical analyses of traffic speed, volume and crash data showed that:

Potential traffic management treatments have been developed to address the feedback received from the community as well as the results of the technical analyses of traffic data.
The objectives of the proposed scheme are to:
The technical principles behind this scheme are that:
It is important to note that the final scheme is an overall master plan for the area and that not all proposed devices will be installed at once. The master plan will guide the implementation of the scheme over a number of years as funding becomes available.
The Tillyard Drive master plan (PDF 1.2MB) shows the proposed scheme.
The locations of treatments shown on the map are indicative only. The exact locations will be determined during the detailed design phase prior to their implementation.
Priorities have been assigned to the proposed treatments based on the results of the technical analysis and the feedback from the community.
An evaluation of the effectiveness of the Priority treatments will take place six months after all their implementation. This evaluation will include a technical analysis of the scheme’s impacts and residents’ views of the extent to which the stated objectives were achieved.
Further implementation of additional treatments will depend on the results of this evaluation and funding availability.
The Priority 1 treatments are summarised below.
