Ducks Lane Precinct Traffic Modelling and Planning

Goulburn Mulwaree Council required a strategic traffic management plan which focuses on the delivery of a suitable future road network, supported by appropriate traffic management measures for Ducks Lane and Run-O-Waters Precinct in Goulburn.

TMA undertook operational modelling of this mixed-used area (industrial, commercial and low-density residential) to analyse existing traffic conditions and characteristics with consideration of growth in commercial and industrial areas. We developed VISSIM microsimulation models to assess future traffic growth, assess future traffic conditions for a 20 year period, and propose future traffic management solutions. We also assessed the feasibility of several intersection upgrades to roundabouts and signal control and made recommendations for optimisations with respect to geometry and signal operation.

Supported through modelling outcomes, we identified future road connectivity requirements and recommended short, medium and long term options and their sequencing to ease congestion and support the Council’s Employment Land Strategy.

We presented our assessment and solutions for the future to the community through the use of storyboards and model videos.
