Merriwa and Carramar traffic options on Wanneroo council agenda

TWO reports on traffic management options for Merriwa and Carramar are back on this month’s Wanneroo City Council meeting agenda.

The reports relating to the Hester Avenue-Baltimore Parade and Joondalup Drive-Cheriton Drive junctions were withdrawn from the July agenda to allow elected members and City staff to discuss them at a forum.

The Merriwa report on the August agenda recommends the City accept a $2.4 million offer from Main Roads WA but use it to install traffic signals rather than a roundabout at the Hester-Baltimore junction.

The Carramar report recommends the council notes Main Roads is doing traffic modelling at Cheriton Drive and ask it to consult the community about the impacts of a grade separation at Wanneroo Road and Joondalup Drive. Both reports are due to be considered next Tuesday.
