THREE dangerous City of Stirling intersections are being upgraded.

The City will receive Federal Black Spot funding for works on roads in Osborne Park, Hamersley and Nollamara.

Stirling MHR Michael Keenan said the projects would help reduce fatalities and serious injuries.

“Road accidents place a major burden on our region,” he said.

“It impacts on our emergency services, it impacts our daily travel, and most importantly, it places incredible strain on friends and families.”

The funding includes $100,000 to install a traffic island at the Morley Drive and Constance Street junction in Nollamara to prevent right turns onto Morley Drive.

“In Osborne Park, $100,000 will be invested to install a median strip at the intersection of Main Street and Hector Street to ban movements through, and in Hamersley, a further $100,000 will fund the extension of left turn pockets on Beach Road,” Mr Keenan said.

Mayor Mark Irwin said it would enable the City to carry out vital work on some of its busiest roads and make them safer for commuters.
