One of Bunbury's major routes is set to be upgraded, as the city council looks for ways of improving road safety in the area. The intersection between Sandridge Road and Pennant Road will be closed to traffic from 18 January as several new features are installed.
Upgrades including the replacement of kerbing and the addition of a new asphalt road surface will be completed over the two-month period, making the route safer for residents of real estate in Bunbury.
The City of Bunbury's director of works and services Gavin Harris explained that since the road opened back in 1980, it's been used by a large amount of traffic. This has partly been a result of the Bunbury Forum Shopping Centre, which has gradually expanded over the years.
Mr Harris continued: "The City has received requests to provide a safe pedestrian crossing point in this area and the installation of traffic lights, combined with the improvements to Pennant Road, allows us to achieve this."
The Western Australian government has also renewed its commitment to road safety over recent weeks, by announcing $104,000 in grants across the state. The funding has been made possible through collecting speeding and red light camera fines, explained road safety minister Liza Harvey.
Recipients of the latest round of funding have included primary schools and local councils, as well as a St John Ambulance sub-centre.
