Treeby residents get road changed
A MOVE to stop cars turning right on to Armadale Road from Treeby’s Ghostgum Avenue has been changed after residents rallied against the proposal.
More than 40 residents signed a Treeby Community Association petition asking for something to be done about the introduction of a ‘no right turn’ for those leaving Ghostgum Avenue once upgrades to Armadale Road are complete.
Treeby Community Association vice-president Raj Paul said with Ghostgum Avenue as their main entry and exit and schools, shops, hospitals and the freeway all to their right, a stop to right-hand turns would have a big impact.
Jandakot MLA Yaz Mubarakai said plans for the intersection were changed after receiving feedback from residents.
He said right-turn access to Armadale Road would no longer be lost and the intersection would maintain full connectivity.
“Armadale Road via Ghostgum Avenue is the main point of access to Calleya Estate, so it’s vital that residents can get in and out of their neighbourhood quickly, safely and easily,” he said.
“Treeby will have around 4000 new residential dwellings when fully developed, so establishing good connectivity for residents is a priority.”
Mr Paul said residents were happy with the result.
“Yaz has done a great job making sure that Ghostgum Avenue has full access to Armadale Road,” he said.
A new temporary pedestrian and cycle path will also be installed on Armadale Road between Ghostgum Avenue and Tapper Road.
