Counting the comings and goings at Waterfront Place

Traffic counts were commissioned around the Port Melbourne Waterfront yesterday by the Port of Melbourne Corporation. People in hi viz vests were on every corner with clipboards in hand. The purpose of the counts is to understand in great detail the number and nature of traffic movements in the precinct. It was a good day for it - hot weather always brings many other visitors to the precinct - in cars and on foot. By late [very hot] afternoon when I passed, this traffic counter at the exit from the TT Lines carpark had melted. The findings of this study will be highly relevant to the draft Port Melbourne Urban Design Framework and ongoing work between the PoMC and the City of Port Phillip to minimise the impact of shipping related traffic on the surrounding community.
