ALKIMOS residents have submitted a 279-signature electronic petition to the City of Wanneroo and other agencies asking them to relieve traffic congestion.
UPDATE, May 18: The petition organiser confirmed that the petition had been successful and works had started to extend the road.
The change.org petition from people living in Alkimos Beach estate asked that the City extend Pectoral Promenade north to join Marmion Avenue and give motorists a second road in and out of the estate.
“Traffic congestion in and out of Alkimos Beach estate has become dangerous and frustrating to residents, school attendees, supermarket shoppers, and public transport providers,” the petition said.
“School drop off and collection times exacerbating the issues.”
The petition organiser submitted the petition to St James Anglican School, Water Corporation, Main Roads WA, Transperth, Alkimos IGA, Lendlease, Alkimos Beach Primary School and LandCorp.
According to an update on the petition, Water Corporation responded in writing that it timed vehicle movements to and from the Alkimos Wastewater Treatment Plant to avoid school pickup times.
The utility said it planned to provide direct access for trucks and vehicles to enter the site directly from Marmion Avenue.
The City’s administration expects to present a report on the petition at the June council meeting.
