Problem intersection being considered for upgrade

The road has been identified as one of the City of Mandurah�s red roads. Red roads are those in the region that have been identified as of high importance. A classification of red road also reduces the costs of land acquisitions if they are needed.

At the City of Mandurah�s governance and infrastructure meeting last week, Council carried a motion to endorse the recommendations for a land acquisition and approved a proposed intersection design.

A review of crash data at this intersection shows that there have been 39 crashes in five years. A significant portion of these are indirect right-angled crashes from Dower Street and Coolibah Avenue.

However, the council meeting acknowledged they are only considering the upgrade due to the impact of a bigger Mandurah Forum.
