LANDSDALE resident Terry Hall says an unmarked section of road in the suburb is dangerous.

He said the road along Kingsway between Alhambra Parkway and Emmetts Road was resurfaced in July last year but no white line markings have been painted on it.

It is on a crest and within the school zone for Carnaby Rise Primary School.

Mr Hall said the road was marked prior to its reconstruction and believed it should be made “as clear as possible to any dangers”, with double white lines his preference.

“Currently the rest of Kingsway has road markings,” he said.

“I have been attempting for months to get this particular area of Kingsway to have the correct road markings.”

City of Wanneroo assets director Harminder Singh said the line markings were the responsibility of Corimbia Estate developer Stockland.

“In the case of Kingsway, the developers didn’t arrange these works and the City contacted Main Roads WA (MRWA) in May 2017 directly to expedite the process,” he said.

“The City and MRWA are working together to mark the road as soon as practicable and, weather permitting, it is expected that the works will take place in August.”

A Stockland spokeswoman said the necessary line markings on that section of road had been completed to Main Roads’ requirements.
