Safe street in the works

- Jaffna · Guildford · Transport Canada · Bassendean

WORK on a safe ac­tive street in Whit­field Street in Bassendean will start early this year.

The Town of Bassendean ap­proved a de­sign last month for a cor­ri­dor be­tween Guild­ford Road and Sandy Beach Re­serve for safe cy­cling and walk­ing.

Pedes­tri­ans and cy­clists will be able to travel to and from the re­serve and Hawai­ian’s Bassendean via the safe ac­tive street. There will be im­prove­ments to road cross­ings, up­graded sig­nage and more land­scap­ing.

The speed limit will drop to 30 km/h. The Depart­ment of Trans­port gave the Town $1.275 mil­lion for the project.
