Urban Road Safety Program
The City and Main Roads WA have been working collaboratively on a new Urban Road Safety Program (URSP) to implement low cost road safety treatments on an area wide basis to reduce the likelihood of fatal and serious injury crashes. Last year, the City installed two pilot projects in Joondanna and Osborne Park and this year.
With 75% support from the community, the City will proceed with the installation of fourteen raised safety platforms at intersections in the area bounded by First Ave, Beaufort St, Central Ave, and Railway Pde. These treatments will improve safety by reducing vehicle speeds and improving the visibility of the intersections to motorists.
The footprint of these raised intersection platforms is considerably smaller than the typical plateau such as those at Carrington St / First Ave and Carrington St / Second Ave and there are no proposed changes to kerb alignments.
In addition to the raised intersection platforms, a mini roundabout will be installed at the intersection of Park Rd and Farnley St. Based on feedback received during the consultation period, the existing slow point on First Ave between Farnley St and Coode St will be also removed.
Main Roads WA have agreed to trial a 40 km/h speed zone in the area to work in conjunction with the proposed traffic treatments subject to the addition of some extra treatments towards the end of Walcott Street. It is anticipated that this second phase may be available from the State Government in subsequent years.
Construction of these projects is scheduled to begin in May 2022 with works completed by the end of June 2022.
How were the treatment locations selected?
Treatment locations were selected through discussions with Main Roads WA with intersections selected based on a significant crash history but not meeting the criteria for other road safety programs (such as the Black Spot program).
Can my street be considered for inclusion in this program?
If further funding is made available under this program, future locations will be selected based on crash patterns within a similar small local area. We are currently investigating the opportunity to install additional treatments between First Ave and Walcott Street in conjunction with Main Roads approval for 40 km/h area speed zone trial.
