Traffic problem on Osprey Drive seen first-hand


Traffic on Osprey Drive is increasing and drivers regularly go over the speed limit.
Traffic on Osprey Drive is increasing and drivers regularly go over the speed limit.

AFTER three years complaining about the speeding and increase traffic problem on Osprey Drive and Yangebup Drive, the wait is over.

I had a Cockburn council traffic road planning technical officer come out and we both witnessed the careless drivers.

On Wednesday, July 6 between 4 and 4.15pm, we witnessed about 100 vehicles pass in front of my house on Osprey Drive.

About 95 per cent of the vehicles were over the 50km/h speed limit and one four-wheel-drive vehicle went up on the footpath for about 15 metres to pass another vehicle.

One truck was doing more than 70km/h and two Transperth buses more than 60km/h.

In addition, vehicles were tailgating.
