REVISED plans to reduce speeding and hooning in Neerabup are out for public consultation until March 1.

The City of Wanneroo previously proposed to install an angled slow point and reduce the road width along the Wanneroo Road* service road between Flynn Drive and Hall Road.

It aimed to increase road safety for access to properties on the service road, but unfavourable community feedback in December prompted the City to revise its plans and extend consultation.

The alternative design proposed planting verge trees and removing excess road shoulder width.

If supported, the project will be done before the end of the 2018-19 financial year.

*Update, February 22: This story was amended to clarify the changes are proposed for the Wanneroo Road service road.
