The dangerous intersection of Hanrahan Road and Parker Street will be upgraded to improve road safety.

The $150,000 upgrade is part of the McGowan Labor Government’s Black Spot Program, and Albany MP Peter Watson said securing these upgrades was a great outcome for the community.

The median along Hanrahan Road, for traffic leaving the roundabout, will be extended and prevent right-hand turning into and out of Parker Street.

“Local traffic safety in this area has always been a community concern,” Mr Watson said.

“That right-turn movement so close to the roundabout, compounded by the fact you have two lanes merging into one, is not safe.”

The works will start this summer and will take two to three weeks to complete.
