Six roads in the cities of Rockingham and Kwinana are among Western Australia’s most dangerous roads, according to a new survey. The RAC Risky Roads Survey 2022 received more than 10,000 nominations from the community for WA’s worst roads and intersections, with many identifying poor road surface quality and narrow lanes as major safety issues. Three intersections in the City of Rockingham were identified in the top 10 riskiest intersections in WA, including Secret Harbour’s Mandurah and Anstey roads intersection, Baldivis and Kulija roads intersection in Baldivis, and the Ennis Ave and Royal Palm Drive intersection in Warnbro. Orton and Thomas roads from Casuarina to Byford were both identified in the survey’s top 10 risky roads, sitting at fourth and seventh respectively, attributed mainly to poor road surface quality. Mundijong Road from Baldivis to Mundijong was ninth on the list, with narrow lanes, road or bridges and poor or no road lighting making it significantly risky for drivers. RAC general manager external relations Will Golsby said the Risky Roads Survey shines a light on safety issues that are often overlooked. “Driving or cycling to work shouldn’t be a stressful or dangerous experience but unfortunately that’s the reality for many in Perth,” Mr Golsby said. “This survey result shows there’s an urgent need for safety treatments across metropolitan Perth. There are some great opportunities for low-cost intersection upgrades, and better walking and cycling paths.” Mr Golsby noted that every five hours, someone is killed or seriously injured on WA roads. “That’s why the feedback from this campaign is so important, it will continue to amplify our calls for safer roads across Perth,” he said.
