Consultation has concluded

The curve on Tarrawanna Road, Corrimal.

As part of Council’s commitment to improve road safety, we have developed a draft plan for road safety measures aimed at slowing down traffic and reducing crashes along Tarrawanna Road, Corrimal.

In December 2020 and January 2021, there were two motor vehicle accidents on this section of Tarrawanna Road. Local residents have raised concerns about road safety in this location and our investigations show speeding is an ongoing issue. We are aiming to reduce vehicle speeds so there will be less chance of crashes in future.

The proposed measures include:

  • A speed table near the Tarrawanna Road / Angel Street intersection.
  • Two speed tables east of the curve in the road.
  • Kerb blisters on the approaches to the curve in the road.

There will be new line marking and no stopping signs to show what the new road conditions are and the bus stop will be relocated east, a few metres down the road. A stormwater drain inlet on the kerb near the Tarrawanna Road and Angel Street intersection will also be upgraded to allow more water into the stormwater network. The Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) have more details about these measures and a photo example to help explain what they are. The draft plan shows where they will be located.

We’d like to know your thoughts on the proposed road safety measures. We'll use people's feedback to make changes to the design if needed. To join the conversation:

Let us know your thoughts by Wednesday 28 July 2021.

    Does there have to be any plants on the kerb blister? (As per example image of the speed table with kerb blisters.) Thank you

    Livkon asked about 1 month ago

    We will not be adding plants to the new kerb blisters proposed for Tarrawanna Road, as there is not enough distance from nearby driveways for this. Having plants there would impact sight lines for drivers coming out of their driveways. The blisters also are not wide enough to accommodate plants and would likely be an ongoing maintenance issue in this location.

    The image in the FAQ that shows kerb blisters with plants is an example to help explain what kerb blisters and speed tables are. We don’t always put plants on kerb blisters. Here are some examples of kerb blisters without any plants: 

    We follow guidelines that say when adding plants, we need to make sure there’s enough clearance from things like driveways and stormwater inlets, so we don’t create any sight line or other issues. These guidelines are called the City Centre Public Domain Technical Manual and the section that talks about the amount of clearance that’s needed is on page 26.
