To maximise safety for road users, Main Roads WA, on behalf of METRONET, has been undertaking intersection upgrades, including road widening on South Western Highway at Eleventh Road, Stone Street and Dickens Road.

Traffic signal installations at Eleventh Road and Stone Street have been unavoidably delayed, we appreciate your patience while we work through how the temporary intersection treatments will operate.


Traffic signal installation – Stone Street and Eleventh Road

Traffic movements at the intersections of Eleventh Road and Stone Street are being managed until permanent traffic signals are installed.

The intersections at Eleventh Road and Stone Street will operate under temporary traffic management as unsignalised T-intersections supported by temporary traffic signals that will operate, as needed, during peak periods. The temporary management is supported by interim line markings, signs, and additional lighting to delineate the lane alignments at each intersection to support traffic movements,

Under the temporary conditions, Main Roads will be monitoring the road environment to assess traffic flows and will operate the temporary traffic signals as needed i.e. due to excessive queuing.
