Coun­cil knocks back speed humps re­quest

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

SPEED humps are not re­quired on Charn­wood Av­enue in Two Rocks, ac­cord­ing to the City of Wan­neroo.

A re­cent re­port to the coun­cil re­sponded to a 59-sig­na­ture pe­ti­tion call­ing for speed humps on the 50km/h road to ad­dress safety con­cerns around Charn­wood Park.

“Charn­wood Av­enue is op­er­at­ing safely, which is re­flected in the avail­able crash data which re­veals that there were no re­ported crashes on Charn­wood Av­enue for the five-year pe­riod (to De­cem­ber 31, 2016),” it said.

“There­fore, the pro­vi­sion of speed humps and speed limit sig­nage is not sup­ported by ad­min­is­tra­tion. It is rec­om­mended that works on Charn­wood Av­enue be re­stricted to the pro­vi­sion of a foot­path con­nec­tion link­ing to the Emba Place pub­lic ac­cess­way.”

The coun­cil unan­i­mously agreed not to ap­prove the humps.
