Major upgrades to two busy intersections in Perth’s growing northern suburbs have been completed ahead of schedule.

The two intersections connecting Marmion Avenue with Hepburn Avenue and Whitfords Avenue are now operational following a $12 million State Government investment towards easing congestion.

Upgrade works involved widening the intersections to provide additional and longer turning lanes, installation of CCTV and improved pedestrian and cycling facilities.

CCTV has been installed to improve incident management and for Main Roads Western Australia to make traffic signal adjustments that will advance traffic flow during the busiest times.

The intersections, used by about 72,000 vehicles per day, are now significantly safer and more efficient for drivers during peak periods.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti said, “These intersection upgrades are necessary as an immediate congestion relief measure as the McGowan Labor Government plans its METRONET extension to Yanchep. Main Roads has delivered these crucial upgrades two months ahead of schedule. The new and extended turning lanes have improved traffic flow and safety – especially at peak times.”
