A joint project to improve road safety and congestion is now complete at the busy intersection of North Lake and Farrington roads in the suburb of North Lake in the City of Cockburn.
The $1.3m project was funded by the City to the tune of $700,000 with the remaining $600,000 coming from the State Government’s WA Black Spot Program.
A second right hand turn lane is now available for motorists travelling north along North Lake Road and wanting to turn right into Farrington Drive, reducing the number of cars queueing beyond the Waverley Road intersection with North Lake Road.
City of Cockburn Chief of Operations Anton Lees said the WA Black Sport Program targeted roads with a proven crash history.
“The North Lake/Farrington intersection recorded 108 crashes between 2016-2020,” Mr Lees said.
“This is why the City was very pleased to receive State Government support through this Main Roads WA funding program.
“It has enabled vital improvements to this intersection which, like many others in our expanding City, has become busier as road usage rates continue to increase.
“Cockburn is a growing City and we are committed to helping make it a great place to live that is safe and easy to move around.”
Construction on this project began in November 2021 and was completed in March 2022.
