Treeby res­i­dents get road changed

Cockburn Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Jes­sica Nico

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.
