Port of Melbourne Community Forum

At last night's meeting at Life Saving Victoria Headquarters, a status report on Williamstown Road was provided.
  • vehicle volumes on Williamstown Road have remained stable over the past 3 years. It is positive there has been no increase as traffic volumes generally increase by about 2 to 3% p/a
  • heavy truck traffic on Williamstown Road, west of Graham, is down approx 300 vehicles per day
  • Plummer St is carrying in the order of 1,500 trucks per day

People questioned whether the full potential of the Plummer St bypass was being realised and raised a number of issues:

  • people doing rat runs through Garden City to avoid queuing at Graham
  • signage and promotion of the route

These issues will be taken up and followed up.
