State and Federal Government Black Spot Projects

Farrington/ North Lake Road - completed

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. Construction completed in March 2022.

Rockingham/ Phoenix Road

Intersection upgrade will improve vehicle safety and congestion by converting the four-way traffic light controlled intersection into a roundabout. This upgrade forms part of the Rockingham Road Revitalisation project.

Spearwood Avenue/ Hamilton Road

One of Cockburn’s most hazardous roundabouts will be made safer thanks to funding from the federal government’s Black Spot Program.

Pre-deflections will be installed on all four approaches to the Spearwood Avenue/Hamilton Road roundabout by the end of 2022, creating a slow-speed environment. Upgrades also include new street-lighting, footpath modifications, drainage, kerbing and a crash barrier on Spearwood Avenue eastbound.
 
Lane and footpath closures will be in place throughout the work period to keep workers and community safe. Advance notification of closures will be provided to help motorists plan ahead. Works are planned to begin in July 2022, and be completed by the end of 2022.
