Timers in ahead of time
THE State Government has completed the rollout of pedestrian countdown timers for this financial year ahead of schedule.
Successful results from an initial trial of countdown timers in the CBD had led to the rollout of more timers across the Perth metropolitan area.
Knowing how many seconds are left on the timer means pedestrians can make more informed choices about crossing the road.
Efficiency of traffic signals form part of a planned strategic approach to deliver benefits and improved safety under Main Roads’ traffic congestion management program.
