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. Two pilot locations within the City have been selected in Joondanna and Osborne Park.
Tyler Street and Waterloo Street in Joondanna (between Green Street and Cape Street) have several standard four-way intersections which will be treated by the installation of speed plateaus at the locations shown on the following page. These treatments will improve safety by reducing vehicle speeds and improving the visibility of the intersections to motorists.
The footprint of these raised intersection plateaus will be considerably smaller than the typical raised intersection type plateau and an example is provided in the picture below.
The section of Osborne Park bounded by Scarborough Beach Road, Hutton Street, Hector Street and King Edward Road will have four additional roundabouts constructed at the locations shown as pink circles on the diagram below. This is consistent with existing roundabouts at the O’Malley Street & Guthrie Street and Sundercombe Street & Guthrie Street intersections (shown in green). In addition to the road safety benefits, these roundabouts will improve traffic flows at these intersections.
Importantly, the treatments involve no kerb modifications and widening works which reduces construction time and minimises impacts to adjoining businesses.
Interested members of the community are invited to direct comments and questions to the City as indicated below.
How were the pilot locations selected?
Pilot 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?
The Urban Road Safety Program is currently in the pilot stage. Other locations will be considered for treatments in the future but are not being considered at this stage.
