Somerton Industrial Area Traffic Study

As part of Hume City Council’s ongoing commitment to Local Area Traffic Management (LATM), Council undertook a study of traffic issues within the Somerton Industrial area bounded by the Craigieburn Railway Line, Glenelg Street, the Upfield Railway Line, Barry Road, the Merri Creek and Craigieburn Road East. Council is now reviewing, and investigating, the feedback received.
