Rockingham esplanade, WA

Western Australia’s City of Rockingham has secured $1.84 million in state and federal black spot funding, to assist in the delivery of five key road safety projects throughout 2022/2023. 

Two of these projects will be staged over 2022/23 and 2023/24, with additional construction funding to come from Main Roads WA next year. 

The costs of these black spot projects are covered entirely by the Federal Government, while state black spot funding is administered by Main Roads WA, covering two-thirds of a project’s budget. 

Four projects will receive state black spot funding, including: 

  • Stakehill Road: various works including reconstructing curves, installing street lighting and a crash barrier that runs 430m east along Stakehill Road to Fletcher Road,  set to be delivered over 2022/23 and 2023/24
  • Warnbro Sound Avenue/Port Kennedy Drive intersection: installing pre-deflections on the southern and western approaches, as well as a crash barrier on the north-western corner
  • Mandurah Road between Office Road and Dixon Road: installation of a sealed shoulder on both sides of the road and a painted median 
  • Mandurah Road between Fifty Road and Safety Bay Road: construction of a raised median, installation of a sealed shoulder on both sides and street lighting upgrades, to be delivered over 2022/23 and 2023/24

While the federally funded black spot project will be delivered at:

  • Safety Bay Road between Julia Street and Michael Road: upgrading drainage, constructing a pedestrian refuge and a shared path 

City of Rockingham Mayor, Deb Hamblin, said the delivery of these black spot projects aligned with the City’s award winning Road Safety Action Plan.

“Blackspot projects are those that have a recorded history of incidents with a specific focus on fatal and/or serious crashes,” Mayor Hamblin said.  

The black spot funding the City has secured from both the Federal and State Government will play a key role in boosting safety for motorists across the community.
