The crash data for 2014 to 2018 inclusive shows the fifteen traffic intersections with the highest reports of vehicle accidents in the City of Cockburn. They are ranked according to the number of people injured, the frequency of accidents and the cost of injury and damage. The road improvements are funded under the state and federal Black Spot Programs to provide a safer road network for drivers, motorcycle riders, pedestrians and cyclists.

For the five-year period to the end of 2018, the top 15 black spot intersections in the City of Cockburn were:

Stock Road and Phoenix Road

101 crashes (20 casualties), crash cost $4.01M for five years

Stock Road is a State road. Mainly rear-end/side-swipe crashes (81 out of 101 crashes). High number of rear-end crashes turning left from Phoenix Road (westbound) into Stock Road (southbound). Monitoring.

Armadale Road and Tapper Road
86 crashes (17 casualties), crash cost $3.5M for five years

Armadale Road is a State road. Predominantly rear-end type crashes, although annual crash rate is decreasing. This intersection will be upgraded by Main Roads WA between 2019 tand 2021 as part of the Armadale Road Bridge project. A 'duck and dive' intersection and additional traffic lanes are proposed.
Armadale Road and Solomon Road
80 crashes (17 casualties), crash cost $4.16M for five years

Armadale Road is a State road. Predominantly right-angle and right-turn through type crashes, although annual crash rate is decreasing. This intersection will be upgraded by Main Roads WA between 2019 and 2021 as part of the Armadale Road Bridge project.
Kwinana Freeway South, Russell Road and Gibbs Road
58 crashes (15 casualties), crash cost $2.46M for five years

Kwinana Freeway interchange is a State road. Intersection upgraded in 2017 as part of the Russell Road/Gibbs Road works by Main Roads WA. Predominant crash type is rear-end/side-swipe type crashes which are significantly over-represented. Intersection upgrade should result in annual crashes reducing.
Hammond Road and Beeliar Drive
60 crashes (13 casualties), crash cost $2.46M for five years

The staggered T-intersections at this location were realigned in early 2015 to form one four-way intersection with traffic lights. As a result, the crash rate dropped from an average of 17.2 crashes a year over five years to 12 crashes in 2018.
 
North Lake Road and Farrington Road
65 crashes (13 casualties), crash cost $2.45M for five years

Annual crash numbers have reduced slightly in recent years. Predominantly a rear-end crash problem. Significant demand for right-turn from North Lake Road into Farrington Street results in a safety hazard because demand regularly exceeds turn lane capacity during peak hours. Submitting for black spot funding 2020/2021.

 
Cockburn Road and Russell Road (West)
76 crashes (13 casualties), crash cost $2.6M for five years

Cockburn Road and Russell Road are both State roads. Main Roads WA are developing a project to upgrade this intersection which is currently at concept stage. City to monitor.
Phoenix Road and Rockingham Road
58 crashes (11 casualties), crash cost $3.4M for five years

Proposed as part of upgrade to Rockingham Road. Safety could be improved by providing separate signal phases for each leg of the intersection or a roundabout. Predominant crash types are right-angle and right turn thru crashes and rear-end crashes.  Difficult intersection to improve because of land and infrastructure constraints.  Submitting for black spot funding 2020/2021.
 
Stock Road and Spearwood Avenue
86 crashes (11 casualties), crash cost $3.65M for five years

Stock Road is a State road. The City has asked MRWA to upgrade signals and improve pedestrian crossing. City to monitor.

 
Phoenix Road and North Lake Road
50 crashes (10 casualties), crash cost $2.35M for five years

Intersection upgraded in 2019 with double right turn heading south, right turn pocket heading west and left turn pocket heading north west were extended. City to monitor.
Armadale Road and Warton Road
37 crashes (10 casualties), crash cost $1.51M for five years

Armadale Road is a State road and this is part of the current Armadale Road duplication project. Traffic signals installed by Main Roads WA in early 2014 and crashes have reduced since. Monitor.

 
Midgegooroo Avenue and Beeliar Drive
116 crashes (10 casualties), crash cost $4.5M for five years

Signalised intersection upgraded by Perron Group to support Gateways Shopping Centre expansion. Predominantly rear-end/side-swipe type crashes. In 2015 this intersection was the highest ranked intersection in Cockburn by crash frequency - 158 crashes from 2010-2014 inclusive. Crashes reducing.

Monitor, review intersection safety and performance as part of any further expansion of the Perron Group Gateways Shopping Centre expansion and proposed overpass for pedestrians.  City to review intersection safety and performance before any further expansion of the shopping centre is approved. Area should benefit from Armadale Road upgrade and the new Armadale Road Bridge.
Kwinana Freeway and Berrigan Drive
41 crashes (10 casualties), crash cost $1.52M for five years

Kwinana Freeway is a State road. Part of the State project for Main Roads WA – Freeway North Widening.
Cockburn Road, Hampton Road and Rockingham Road
35 crashes (9 casualties), crash cost $1.74M for five years

Main Road WA intersection. Concept plan developed for proposed upgrade of cycling infrastructure and median islands along Rockingham Road. Monitoring.
Spearwood Avenue and Beeliar Drive
66 crashes (9 casualties), crash cost $3.48M for five years

Spearwood Avenue was widened to a four lane divided road in 2019. The City has a project concept plan in place. Monitoring.
