Addressing speed

The City of Armadale uses electronic speed display signs to remind road users to slow down on local roads. The signs are deployed on roads that have been identified as having speed concerns and provide valuable information for Council staff. The signs are one of a series of strategies the City uses to manage travel speeds.

Fleet Safety

The City of Armadale is one of the leaders in fleet safety in Western Australia. The City has a comprehensive fleet safety policy that covers the seven key elements of fleet safety and continues to improve their vehicle safety record.

Road safety awareness
