In April of this year MTAG commissioned a study into the impact of truck traffic on residents of the inner west. Approximately 1000 surveys were distributed throughout Yarraville, Kingsville, Seddon, and Footscray. Of these 500 were placed in letterboxes on the major freight routes of Francis St, Somerville Rd, Williamstown Rd and Buckley St. The remaining surveys were distributed through childcare centres, schools and via the MTAG website. Around 300 of these surveys were completed and returned; a number of other surveys came from respondents through the MTAG website.
Now the published results of this Health Survey are available as a download as pdf.
