Development & Infrastructure
Council continues to monitor traffic movements throughout the City and, where warranted, looks at installing traffic calming devices and other road safety measures as a means to increase road safety and manage local traffic conditions and inappropriate use of streets. The improvements of these streets are then linked with other programs including road reconstruction programs or urban regeneration projects.
To guide decision making, the Council has endorsed a Traffic Management Strategy which prioritises the need for the development of Transport Parking Plans (Previously Local Area Traffic Management Plans) and a Walking & Cycling Strategy in the City.
For more information contact the Coordinator Transport Strategy and Assets on 8408 1281 or by email.
Residents are encouraged to submit all concerns in writing with as much detail as possible including photos if available.
Alternatively you can contact the Customer Service Centre on 8408 1111 and a Customer Service Representative will forward your request to our Transport Strategy & Assets team.
Hoon Driving in our Suburbs
If you are witnessing dangerous driving in your area such as speeding or hoon driving behaviour, please report this to the South Australian Police by calling 131 444.
For more information see the South Australian Police Traffic Watch page
The process used to determine whether traffic control should be installed is as follows:
For all road damage ensure that you have the street name, suburb, and if possible a street number or identify a landmark that will make the location easy to find
All main roads are the responsibility of DPTI. For any damage or road hazards please call the Traffic Management Centre on 1800 018 313.
All other road damage can be reported to our Customer Service Centre on 8408 1111. The Customer Service Representative will record the details of the hazard in our Request Management System and forward it to the appropriate team for action.
Once the request has been logged the Customer Service Representative will provide you with a Customer Reference number which can be used to follow up your request if needed.
If the damage is considered to be dangerous the Customer Service Representative will arrange for our Rapid Response Team to attend as soon as possible.
Contractors working for service utility companies that provide water, sewerage, gas, electricity and telecommunications also work on our roads to provide these services to their customers. Whether it is for a burst water main or a new gas connection to a property, they need to dig up the road to do the necessary work and then restore the road or footpath to a usable state.
Each service utility company is required to notify Charles Sturt of any work their contractor will be carrying out, however, if you notice that a road or footpath has not been restored to its previous usable state, please notify us by calling the Customer Service Centre on 8408 1111.
