Bicycle markings can be seen in the centre of traffic lanes on the approach to traffic signal stop lines.
The markings consist of a bicycle and a number of diamonds and are used to help cyclists get into the best position for the detection loops at traffic signals to be triggered so that a green light will be called.
Sometimes cyclists wait in a position that the detection loops fail to recognise and when no traffic is around, the traffic signals will not change to green.
The Road Traffic Code 2000 defines a built-up area as:
"The territory contiguous to and including any road -
1. On which there is provision for street lighting at intervals of not over 100 m for a distance of at least 500 m or, if the road is shorter than 500 m, for the whole road; or
2. Which is built up with structures devoted to business, industry or dwelling houses at intervals of less than 100 m over a distance of one half kilometres or more."

Unfortunately this mulch cannot be collected by the public as we use this mulch for stabilisation and revegetation. It is untreated so may not be suitable for private gardens.
Pedestrians & Cyclists page for more information.
Since 2001, we have progressively updated pedestrian crossing lights to operate as “Parallel Walk Crossings” as this was determined to be the preferred configuration by motorists, cyclists and pedestrian, in both Australian and international research studies.
Turning motorists must give way to pedestrians crossing the road they are turning into - this is fundamental to the effectiveness of parallel walk crossings. Pedestrians have responsibility to only begin crossing when there is a “green figure” signal. This is generally displayed for six seconds, with the vehicle green light signal (never a green arrow) delayed for five seconds. Crossing times are configured so pedestrians complete their crossing while the “flashing red figure” is displayed. Under no circumstances should pedestrians cross when a “red figure” is displayed.
For further information regarding pedestrian road use please visit our
Pedestrians & Cyclists pages.
Turning vehicles giving way to pedestrians is an enforceable element of the road traffic code. Inappropriate behaviour should be reported to WA Police on 131 444.
Red light cameras are managed by WA Police. For all queries relating to red light cameras, please contact WA Police on 131 444.

Safety standards and regulations require our staff and contractors to erect warning signs – often including speed reduction signs – whenever roadway changes occur or road works are underway.
The signs might highlight changes to road conditions (eg slippery or “loose stones” road surfaces, a drop off at the road edge) or have been erected in preparation for road works to begin. In addition, road workers may not always be visible from the road: for example they may be under the roadway.
In the interests of safety, we ask that you take note of signage and always assume road workers are in the vicinity. We value your safety and also that of our workforce.
The school administration or P&C Committee should apply on school letterhead to us; Speed Zoning Officer, who will arrange to visit the school. All applications are assessed in line with

Our call centre can be contacted for this information on 138 138. Please keep in mind this information is always subject to checks on whether road works are underway or whether some other hazard requires reduced speeds to be observed.
If a metropolitan road in a built-up area is not signposted, the speed limit is 50 km/h.
In built-up areas, speed limits are sign-posted only where these differ from the default 50 km/h speed limit.
Police enforcement and physical traffic calming measures (installed by local councils) are proven to be more effective than signage in slowing traffic in residential streets. Please contact the WA Police on 131 444 or contact your local council for assistance if you feel road safety is compromised in particular locations.
If you wish to dispute your speeding infringement, contact
WA Police Infringement Management & Operations section on (08) 9222 1408.
We are responsible for all speed limits and speed zones on public roads in WA. To determine the speed zone on a particular road within the Perth metropolitan area, please send us a copy of your speeding infringement and we will refer it to our speed zoning section for confirmation.
Alternatively, if the infringement occurred in a regional area please contact our nearest
regional office for their confirmation.
Street lights in residential areas are the responsibility of Western Power. Please call 1800 622 008.
