Killer road remedies

By Melissa Sheil

CRASH hot spots in the City of Kalamunda are being addressed, with staff putting forward submissions for government funding to make safety modifications on three roads.

Canning Mills Road, Heath Road and Welshpool Road East have all been identified as traffic ‘black spots’, collectively experiencing 37 crashes from 2016 to 2020 with two fatalities and several hospitalisations.

Proposed remedies include widening the road shoulders and installing safety barriers at Canning Mills Road, installing speed cushions and pedestrian crossings at Heath Road and installing safety barriers, modifying the Crystal Brook Road intersection and moving the access way to Lions Lookout at Welshpool Road East.

Other roads considered but not chosen for the submission included Kalamunda, Midland and Hale Roads.

The City will learn if its application was successful in May 2022.
