Line mark­ings to ease free­way con­ges­tion

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

PERTH A TWO-year roll­out of free­way line mark­ings to ease traf­fic con­ges­tion has started.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Dean Nalder said $8.5 mil­lion would be spent im­ple­ment­ing changes to line mark­ings at free­way merges, in­clud­ing on-ramps to the Kwinana and Mitchell free­ways and five off-ramps.

“At on-ramps the im­prove­ments in­volve us­ing a bet­ter de­fined merge line be­tween the on­ramp and the free­way traf­fic lanes that im­proves merg­ing be­hav­iour,” he said.

At the five off-ramps, the merge will be re­moved com­pletely to cre­ate an ex­clu­sive exit lane, which has al­ready hap­pened at Hut­ton Street.

The changes fol­low a re­cent Main Roads trial of merge-line treat­ments to on-ramps.
