Timers in ahead of time

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

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.

Fur­ther sites will timers next fi­nan­cial year.
