Draft designs for intersection upgrade

Published: Friday, 1 May 2020 at 3:54:10 PM

Main Roads WA have released the first draft design for upgrades to the intersection of Scarborough Beach Road, Main Street, Green Street and Brady Street.

The City is asking for feedback for Main Roads to consider before proceeding with the next stage of design.

The project is funded by the State Government and aims to improve safety for all road users.

The draft design is based on traffic data, accident and congestion statistics, engineering design standards and community consultation conducted by the office of John Carey MLA in 2019.

The design features a full movement roundabout at the intersection of Scarborough Beach Road and Green Street, plus upgrades to cycling routes, pedestrian infrastructure and landscaping.

The proposed full movement roundabout will improve safety and efficiency for all road users by:

  1. Eliminating the existing two-stage road crossing from westbound Green Street onto Scarborough Beach Road. This will allow the intersection to be more free-flowing and removes the dangerous crossover.
  2. Providing a safe right-turn option from westbound Scarborough Beach Road onto Green Street.
  3. Allowing right-turn movements from eastbound Scarborough Beach Road to Brady Street.
  4. Improving pedestrian and cycling safety, with a new shared path south of Scarborough Beach Road between Main Street/Brady Street and the new proposed Green Street roundabout, a raised pedestrian crossing on Scarborough Beach Road and full pedestrian green crossings at the Main Street traffic lights.

As part of the proposal, the existing one-way access into Birrell Street will close to accommodate the roundabout.
