Up­grade for key in­ter­sec­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

THE City of Ned­lands and the Town of Cam­bridge have been awarded a Road Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Grant for $580,000 from the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Re­gional Road Group to up­grade the in­ter­sec­tion of Brock­way Road, Brook­dale Street and Un­der­wood Av­enue.

The pro­posed de­sign was in­tended to in­crease safety, re­duce con­ges­tion and re­duce the over­all num­ber of and sever­ity of crashes.

Pedes­trian and cy­clist fa­cil­i­ties would also be im­proved, along with im­prov­ing vis­i­bil­ity from an up­grade to the street light­ing and LED tech­nol­ogy up­grade of the traf­fic sig­nals.

Ned­lands Mayor Max Hip­kins said he wel­comed the re­cent news from Main Roads WA that the grant for the joint project had been suc­cess­ful.

“Both the Town of Cam­bridge and the City of Ned­lands are pleased that the safety is­sues at this in­ter­sec­tion have been recog­nised by Main Roads WA and the fund­ing for the up­grade to the in­ter­sec­tion goes a long way to help en­hance and im­prove road safety within the City,” Mr Hip­kins said.

Cam­bridge Mayor Keri Shan­non said Ned­lands’ work was en­dorsed.

“As a result, our com­mu­nity will soon en­joy safety up­grades for pedes­tri­ans and road users at this busy in­ter­sec­tion,” Ms Shan­non said.
