Intersection Upgrades Project
The Shire of Harvey has been working to improve safety at locally managed intersections in Australind. A Road Safety Inspection of The Boulevard and The Promenade intersection made a number of recommendations which resulted in the conventional intersection replaced with a large roundabout.
The roundabout has altered the priority at the intersection and has provided improved safe access to and from The Promenade and improved access to the Treendale Shopping Centre.
Roundabouts are a safe system intersection treatment, reducing complexity and the severity of crashes when they do occur, so they are less likely to result in death or serious injury. Changing the angle in which vehicles interact, and lowering the speed which vehicles enter and use the roundabout results in increased safety at this intersection.
The project was funded through the South West Regional Road Group Improvement and Expansion Program and also Australian Government Local Road and Community Infrastructure Program.
