THE Albany Highway and Dorothy Street intersection is in the running for an upgrade as part of this year’s State and National Black Spot Program.

The City of Gosnells council announced they were submitting the intersection to the black spot program in an effort to secure funding for safety improvements.

Thirty-six crashes from 2013-2017 prompted the City to submit the intersection for funding consideration.

Gosnells is hoping to secure $80,000 in funding to install green arrows on traffic signals for cars coming from Dorothy Street, remove the diagonal pedestrian crossing and install flashing yellow signals for the pedestrian crossing.

The City is also chasing separate $80,000 grants for two other road safety projects they submitted to the program.

They have targeted funding for channelisation and footpath realignment on the Anaconda Drive and Chamberlain Street intersection and to improve pedestrian path connectivity and delineation for vehicle paths on Maddington Road between Dellar Road and Eva Street.
