The opportunity to provide feedback on the Local Area Movement Plan has now concluded. If you would like to get in touch with us, please see the Who's Listening box (right).

Calling all cyclists, drivers, pedestrians and public transport users – we want your say on how we can improve Hobsons Bay’s transport network.

Thank you to everyone who has already provided feedback on Council’s Local Area Movement Plan (LAMP). We’ve extended the consultation to Sunday 28 April so there’s still time to have your say.


As part of LAMP, you may start to see various forms of data collection being undertaken through Altona Meadows, Laverton and Seabrook. This includes black pneumatic tube counters that provide information on traffic speed, volume and vehicle type. The data collected will help determine appropriate solutions to the issues identified by the community.

Council is developing a Local Area Movement Plan (LAMP) for the suburbs of Altona Meadows, Seabrook and Laverton. The LAMP will identify key transport challenges and constraints, as well as possible opportunities for improvement in the ways people move in this area, using all modes of transport.

The LAMP will deliver a clear five year framework to guide Council’s infrastructure planning and implementation, advocacy to state and federal governments and community programs that will contribute to a sustainable, safe, well connected, efficient and accessible transport network.

Council has developed a background report for the western package LAMP. The report includes a range of key challenges and constraints the Hobsons Bay community has identified when using the following modes of transport:

  • Walking
  • Cycling
  • Public Transport
  • Road Network
  • Parking

How we identified these key challenges?

  • customer enquiries to do with traffic issues, road safety and parking since 2009
  • feedback collected during the development of Council’s Integrated Transport Plan 2017-30
  • site inspections
  • traffic counts
  • reviewing existing reports and data

What we have heard

We’ve collated all of this information. Here are the top issues:

  • limited connectivity to the Princess Freeway and increasing congestion
  • pedestrian routes can be indirect and discontinuous
  • crossings don’t always align with where pedestrians want to go
  • there are limited connections for cycling
  • bus services are indirect and infrequent and can be caught in congestion during peak periods
  • inconsistent parking restrictions
  • peak period congestion on roads that are the main links into and out of the area.

Some of these challenges are within Council’s control and we can therefore directly support improvements in these areas. Yet others, including public transport and main roads, are outside Council control as they are managed by the state government, therefore Council can only advocate for improvements.

Have your say!

Council wants to know if we have captured all the issues and opportunities in the background report and will use this engagement as a way to gather any further information about people’s transport experience in this area.

  • is there something we have missed?
  • what has stopped you from moving efficiently and safely in Altona Meadows, Seabrook and Laverton?
  • what are your expectations?
  • where should improvements be made?

Read the Local Area Movement Plan - Background Report and find out about the identified challenges and constraints for our transport networks and future opportunities.

Using the interactive map tell us where you think there are opportunities for improvements!
