A CITY of Rockingham councillor says a fake crosswalk painted on a Baldivis Road will be removed as soon as possible.

Councillor Matt Whitfield posted a picture of the crosswalk on his Facebook page this afternoon.

“You will perhaps have noticed that there is a new ‘pedestrian crossing’ on Makybe Drive between Delta road and Phar Lap Parade,” he wrote.

“This ‘appeared’ over the weekend.

“This is not approved by the City or Main Roads, and it is not a legal crossing.

“This is not a supervised crossing and it does not comply with any safety standards.

“Not sure who painted this (in fairness they have done a great job of it!) and would be keen to hear from anyone about this (surely someone noticed someone painting a zebra crossing on a decently busy road!).

“The City will be removing these markings as soon as possible.”
