THE City of Swan says it will investigate the need for additional warning signs and line marking at the Padbury Ave-Moore Rd intersection to improve driver awareness on the approaches to the cross roads intersection.
Chief executive officer Mike Foley said any upgrade to the signage at the intersection would require the approval of Main Roads WA as they were the sign erecting authority in the state.
Mr Foley said the city had been contacted by one resident regarding the Millendon intersection in 2016.
“As a result of an inspection in February 2016, the city arranged for Main Roads WA to remark the Give Way lines and replace a missing Cross Roads Ahead warning sign,’’ he said.
He said in the five years from 2012 to 2016 inclusive there had been four reported crashes at the intersection.
Milledon residents have said they wanted action before someone was killed at the intersection with as many as two serious crashes a year resulting in cars in a resident’s paddock, smashed fencing and in one case a driver narrowly missed being impaled by a pole through the windscreen.
The speed limit on the rural road is 70km/h.
