Williamtown Road and Plummer St

Traffic volumes on Williamstown Rd have declined over the last 10 years.

Council's annual traffic survey site east of Page St shows
  • 1999: 23,000 vehicles per day [vpd], 2010: 17,300 vpd, a reduction of 6,500 vpd
  • of those vehicles, in 1999, 2,300 were trucks, and in 2010: 2,008 were trucks

It was anticipated in 2002 that Plummer St would carry in the order of 5,000 to 7,000 vpd. Surveys in February 2010 showed it was carrying 10,000 vpd. The Plummer St bypass is working. The survey shows that while there has been an increase in traffic overall, traffic volumes on Williamstown Rd have declined.
