WEST Swan Road’s most dangerous intersection will receive safety upgrades as part of the 2018-19 Black Spot Program.

The intersection of West Swan Road and Cranleigh Street will receive $196,667 worth of funding for the carriageway to be widened to provide an auxiliary right turn into Cranleigh Street.

West Swan MLA Rita Saffioti said the upgrades would make the intersection safer for road users.

“The program targets sites with a proven crash history or those with a high risk,” she said.

“Since its inception in 2000, it has delivered $450 million in specific safety initiatives on the WA road network for drivers, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.”

The intersection of Gnangara Road and Alexander Drive will receive upgrades with mast arms and skid resistant treatment to be installed on both approaches and Joondalup Drive and Pinjar Road in Banksia Grove will be upgraded with pre-deflection.
