Local Area Traffic Management Plans
The Quantum Traffic team are specialists in undertaking LATM studies required by local councils to assist with the management of their road network and provide holistic solutions and recommendations.
What is a LATM Study?
Local Area Traffic Management (LATM) is the process of reviewing local street networks to identify existing issues and develop solutions. LATM studies typically focus on engineering solutions (i.e. physical infrastructure), but also consider enforcement and education.
An LATM study seeks to engage the local community to identify issues and develop solutions for their own local area. This typically includes a public meeting to introduce the study to the local community and the formation of a community reference group to provide input at multiple stages of the project.
The key output of a LATM study is the preparation of a Traffic Management Plan for the local area, which can include the staged implementation of recommended traffic management items.
When is a LATM Needed?
LATM studies are typically conducted by councils to assist with the management of their road network. Many municipalities in Melbourne have introduced LATM programs for the continual review of their local areas.
LATM studies are particularly good at considering traffic management issues on an area-wide basis. This results in holistic solutions for a local area, rather than localised reactive solutions.
The LATM process is also helpful in engaging the local community and providing a level of ‘ownership’ for the traffic management plan developed.
