Road upgrades for two key Perth intersections

The Western Australian State Government will provide $3 million to install traffic signals at the intersection of the Australind Bypass and Vittoria Road in Perth, to further improve safety and ease congestion along this busy stretch of road.

WA Transport Minister, Troy Buswell, said the signals would be installed on the southbound lanes of the Australind Bypass, with an acceleration lane to also be built.

“This intersection, just one kilometre east of the major Eelup roundabout, has about 40,000 vehicles pass through it each day,” Buswell said.

“These works will complement the recently-completed works to signalise the Eelup roundabout and is part of an overall strategy to improve road safety on this popular stretch of road.”

The WA Minister also welcomed the City of Bunbury’s recent agreement to main roads undertaking signalisation of the existing intersection of Koombana and Estuary drives, directly adjacent to the Eelup roundabout.

“Signalisation at this site will complement the overall management of inter-regional traffic, peak commuter flow between Australind and Bunbury and movements of freight and vehicles to and from the inner harbour,” he said.
