How is Plummer St going?

The Plummer St bypass opened in June 2008. People have reported different experiences. The actual traffic counts on Monday 2 September show that:
  • Plummer St (24 hour traffic volume) 7,500 vpd
  • Plummer St trucks 1,468 (20% of all vehicles)
  • Williamstown Road (near Page St) 17,500 vpd (down from 25,000 vpd)
  • Williamstown Road trucks 2,208 or 12% of all vehicles (down by >3,500 vpd)

I will work to make the Plummer St bypass the route of choice for trucks through better signage and education.
