Two Rocks: City of Wanneroo council rejects call for Charnwood Avenue speed humps

SPEED humps are not required on Charnwood Avenue in Two Rocks, according to the City of Wanneroo.

A recent report to the council responded to a 59-signature petition calling for speed humps on the 50km/h road to address safety concerns around Charnwood Park.

“Charnwood Avenue is operating safely, which is reflected in the available crash data which reveals that there were no reported crashes on Charnwood Avenue for the five-year period (to December 31, 2016),” it said.

“Therefore, the provision of speed humps and speed limit signage is not supported by administration. It is recommended that works on Charnwood Avenue be restricted to the provision of a footpath connection linking to the Emba Place public accessway.”

The council unanimously agreed not to approve the humps and approved spending $2500 to install the footpath connection at its August meeting.
