WA Government implements road safety recommendations

  • Posted on Thursday 9th, November 2017.

The Western Australian Government has introduced a speed limit reduction along a stretch of Indian Ocean Drive in line with a recommendation from a recently released safety review.

Lowering the speed limit to 100 km/h was the first of a number of findings in the safety report undertaken by the Indian Ocean Drive Highway Safety Review Group, which is comprised of expert staff from the Road Safety Commission, WA Police Force and Main Roads WA.

The group identified a series of findings that could improve safety along the road.

Many of the recommendations such as a speed limit reduction, audible edge and centre lines, increased police patrols, more signage and additional overtaking lanes are already being implemented by the State Government.

"I want to thank the Road Safety Commission and Acting Commissioner Iain Cameron for spearheading the production of this report,” said Road Safety Minister, Michelle Roberts.

"This is important information for Government.

"We're already taking decisive action to implement a number of these measures and I hope to make further announcements in the future.

"Our objective is clear – we want this road to be as safe as possible, and we want drivers to drive responsibly and to the conditions,” she said.
