Abstract

The Queensland Streets document was published in May 1993 to provide the basis for uniform design standards for residential streets in Queensland. This document incorporated new design principles and techniques for the control of traffic volumes and traffic speeds in residential streets. This dissertation investigates the traffic calming control devices that have been installed in the residential streets of Logan City. The investigation includes assessing traffic calming devices in Logan City to predict the likely speeds through the devices, carrying out on-site measurement of speeds through devices, making comparisons with the Queensland Streets document to assess if these devices meet the objectives of Queensland Streets, and, if satisfactory devices were found, determining a small number of devices that could be adopted as standard devices for use in Logan City.
