Toodyay Road intersection upgrades

 

Overview

In 2017-18, we continue to plan for further upgrades of Toodyay Road, in the City of Swan, to improve safety.

We are seeking funding to upgrade 2.4km of Toodyay Road between Country and Reen roads. We will also complete designs to upgrade the intersections of Toodyay Road with Roland and O’Brien roads, ensuring this project is ready for construction when further funding becomes available.

This work will complement the work undertaken on Toodyay Road in 2016-17, which upgraded the junctions of Preedy Road, Lilydale Road, Old Coach and Old Toodyay roads, Reserve Road and Stanley Road. As part of this project, Toodyay Road was also widened between Stanley and Preedy roads to include sealed shoulders and safety barriers in key locations, helping to create a safer road environment for all road users.

These projects were funded through the State Government’s Road Trauma Trust Account, which collects 100 per cent of its funds from speed and red light camera infringements. This funding is then allocated to road safety projects and initiatives that target preventing the types of crashes that cause serious injury or death.

 

Project scope

If funding is secured, the upgrade of Toodyay Road between Country and Reen roads will include:

  • Dedicated left and right-turning pockets on Toodyay Road at the intersections of Stoneville and Reen roads;
  • Left and right-turn lanes on Stoneville and Reen roads at Toodyay Road;
  • Relocation and extension of the westbound passing lane on Toodyay Road to the west of Stoneville Road;
  • Improvements to the Old Toodyay Road rest area on the northern side of Toodyay Road, including intersection modifications, turning pockets on Toodyay Road and a turn-around area;
  • Widening of Toodyay Road to include 1.5m sealed shoulders; and
  • Street lighting at the Stoneville and Reen road intersections to meet current Australian standards.
