Fears un­marked road poses haz­ard

Wanneroo Times - - News - Laura Pond

LANDSDALE res­i­dent Terry Hall says an un­marked sec­tion of road in the sub­urb is dan­ger­ous.

He said the road along Kingsway be­tween Al­ham­bra Park­way and Em­metts Road was resur­faced in July last year, but no white line mark­ings had been painted on it.

It is on a crest and within the school zone for Carn­aby Rise Pri­mary School.

Mr Hall said the road was marked prior to its re­con­struc­tion and be­lieved it should be made “as clear as pos­si­ble to any dan­gers”, with dou­ble white lines his pref­er­ence.

City of Wanneroo as­sets di­rec­tor Har­min­der Singh said the line mark­ings were the re­spon­si­bil­ity of Corim­bia Es­tate de­vel­oper Stock­land.

“In the case of Kingsway, the de­vel­op­ers didn’t ar­range these works and the City con­tacted Main Roads WA (MRWA) in May 2017 di­rectly to ex­pe­dite the process,” he said.

“The City and MRWA are work­ing to­gether to mark the road as soon as prac­ti­ca­ble and, weather per­mit­ting, it is ex­pected that the works will take place in Au­gust.”

A Stock­land spokes­woman said the nec­es­sary line mark­ings on that sec­tion of road had been com­pleted to Main Roads’ requirements.
