The City of Kalamunda has been successful in receiving a $181,620 National Black Spot Grant for the Kalamunda Road/Newburn Road/Chipping Drive intersection in High Wycombe.  

The grant will allow road safety improvements to be undertaken at the intersection, should the proposal receive community endorsement.

Main Roads crash summary reports indicate that in the 5 years to the end of December 2015, 48 crashes were recorded at the intersection; 21 of which were “rear end”, 17 of which were “right angle” and five of which were “right turn through”.

The City of Kalamunda is seeking the community’s feedback on the proposed improvements, which include pre-deflections and turning pocket modifications.

City of Kalamunda Mayor John Giardina welcomed the grant which he said would be of great benefit to the community.

“Road user safety is a key priority for the City.  The grant from the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program will help improve safety for all.”
