Residents draw to the attention of the council the increase in traffic using Lang Street as a through way despite the street entry from Wynnum Road stating "local traffic only". The traffic passes through with high speed and the recently installed speed awareness sign (now taken down) seems to have had little effect. The local traffic signage is inconsistent and is not visible coming Richmond Road. The high traffic with commonly illegal speeds poses a great safety hazard to the residents and pedestrians as well high noise pollution due to hooning and excessive traffic.

We are petitioning that street calming strategies like speed bumps or speed cameras are being considered . Furthermore, that the consistency of the street signage gets revised and the speed limits and traffic restrictions get strictly enforced.
