29 November 2018: SMEC was commissioned by Hindmarsh Pty Ltd (Hindmarsh) to conduct a traffic study for the proposed development of a self-storage facility on Blocks 7&8, Section 66 Deakin. A Transport Assessment Report was previously produced by Opus detailing the impact of a residential development on the site. The analysis in this report is based on the same observed AM and PM peak hour traffic volumes at intersections along Kent Street as used by Opus. Blocks 7&8 Section 66 Deakin are currently undeveloped land behind the existing defence installation occupying block 6. This study includes traffic generation based on trip generation rates taken from the Institution of Transportation Engineers (ITE), traffic distribution based on existing traffic on Kent Street and intersection analysis using SIDRA Intersection. Report, Appendix A: Input volumes, Appendix B: Movement summaries.
