Roads & Traffic

The Traffic and Road Safety team is responsible for managing traffic and parking on local streets through initiatives such as traffic calming, parking control, optimisation of kerbside parking, and installing intersection control, pedestrian and access mobility facilities and street lights.

This team administers the operation of the Rockdale Traffic Committee under the Delegation of the Roads and Maritime Services of NSW. The Committee meets monthly except in January and December. The Committee comprises four voting members who are the representatives of Council, the Roads and Maritime Services Traffic Authority, the St George Police, and State Members for Rockdale and Kogarah. Non-voting members comprise the representatives from the State Transit Authority, Veolia Transport, St George Cabs, Bicycle Group Users and Council's Traffic and Road Safety staff.

The Committee considers the public concerns regarding traffic and parking on local streets and recommends appropriate measures to Council for adoption.

This team also provides comments to Council in assessing new developments to measure and control impacts on traffic and parking. In addition, it conducts road safety and behavioural campaigns to increase awareness and improve driver/road user behaviour.

Through collective initiatives, the team aims to reduce the number and severity of traffic crashes in the whole Rockdale City Council's area.

For further enquiries regarding traffic, parking, road safety educational safety campaign and street light, please phone the Traffic and Road Safety Coordinator on 9562 1649 or Council's Customer Service Centre on 9562 1666.
