The heavy vehicle ban on Watson Road, Acacia Ridge, put in place from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020, has reached the halfway mark and a partial review of its progress is to be undertaken.
This will involve:
Council undertaking an Origin – Destination (O-D) Survey in February 2020 – involving a complete picture of truck movements in Acacia Ridge i.e. including those using Watson Road etc.
Using cameras on major arterial roads to track truck number plates.
Comparing current heavy vehicle usage data with O-D data obtained prior to 1 July 2019.
During June / July 2020 Council will complete a full review including information received from locals, businesses, Police, transport companies etc.
Announcing outcome of trial ban July 2020.
Police will continue to proactively enforce the heavy vehicle truck ban according to directional signage.
If you wish to make comments regarding the trial ban please contact the Moorooka Ward Office.
