Banu Ave traffic calming work starts

Work started this week to address concerns about drivers speeding along Banu Ave in Six Seasons.

A road safety audit commissioned by the Shire highlighted speeding as an issue along Banu Ave, along with concerns raised by residents about visibility when exiting driveways. 

The project is endorsed by Main Roads WA and funded through the WA Black Spot program.

Work will include installing traffic calming devices, modifying landscaping to improve visibility and upgrading kerbs and footpaths.

Work should be completed by the end of next week, with road closures and detours in place at times.

 

BRAC turning lane to cut congestion

Work is nearly finished on constructing a new turning lane at the exit of Broome Recreation and Aquatic Centre to help reduce traffic congestion at peak times.

Work has also included improvements to traffic islands, footpaths and line marking and has taken about two weeks.

 

Annual urban road resealing program

Works is continuing on the Shire’s annual urban road resealing program.

The current program includes Farrell St, DeMarchi Rd, Jigal Dve, Fairway Dve, Anne St, Weld St, Dora St, Blick Dve and the Broome Visitor Centre carpark.

By proactively resealing the roads long-term maintenance costs are reduced, and residents are asked to please drive carefully on resealed roads as loose stones need to be left on the surface initially to be embedded.  

 

Hunter St upgrade starting soon

Work is scheduled to get underway on upgrades to Hunter St, between Clementson St and Guy Street, on Monday 14 August.

The work will include upgrading the road surface, drainage and crossovers.

The works will be carried out by Shire staff and local contractors and is expected to take approximately six weeks.
