City of Rockingham councillors have voted to allocate $50,000 to engage a consultant to develop a design for the installation of three entry statements into Rockingham.

Councillors last week unanimously supported the motion, which will see entry statements eventually installed on Patterson, Safety Bay and Mandurah roads.

The designs will be modelled on the Kulija Road entry statement - a series of steel pillars adorned with the City’s little penguin emblem - which City officers said met the City’s branding and place-making objectives.

In a report to council, City officers said each entry road currently had a different entry statement approach, but that the existing signs on Patterson and Mandurah roads were “dated” and “suffered from a clutter of competing signs and structures”.

Safety Bay Road does not have any signage at all.
