What upgrades are being proposed at the Kalamunda Road/Newburn Road/Chipping Drive intersection in High Wycombe?
following upgrades are being proposed for the Kalamunda Road/Newburn
Road/Chipping Drive intersection in High Wycombe:
Reconfiguration of Kalamunda Road western approach from two lanes (one designated left-turn/through movement lane and one designated right-turn pocket) to one lane (one lane with all movements available);
Modifications to raised median islands, kerb alignment and line marking on the Kalamunda Road western approach to the roundabout (i.e. the approach adjacent to Hungry Jacks) to provide improved entry deflection and hence reducing speed on the approach to the roundaout; and
Improved line marking on all roundabout entries and exits that clearly delineates the traffic lane.
has shown that rear end crashes are significantly over represented at the
intersection. This is considered to be a result of the intersection’s geometry,
particularly with regards to the Kalamunda Road approaches.
Main Roads crash summary reports
indicate that in the 5 years to the end of December 2015, 21 crashes at the
intersection were “rear end” crashes, 17 were “right angle” crashes and
five were “right turn through” crashes.
conclusion of the online survey, stakeholder consultation will be analysed and
prepared into a report for Council. Interested residents are encouraged to keep
an eye on the Kalamunda website http://www.kalamunda.wa.gov.au (for Council meeting agenda papers), or engage.kalamunda.wa.gov.au for updates.
