Drivers, passengers and pedestrians will now be safer travelling along William Street in Beckenham, thanks to the completion of a new roundabout at the intersection of Camberwell Street.
The new intersection, west of Beckenham Train Station, is now complete and includes the realignment of Bickley Road to create the four-way roundabout, replacing the previous T-intersections.
The $1.65 million project was funded by the Australian Government Blackspot Program. City of Gosnells Mayor Terresa Lynes said the improvements to the intersection would provide a significant benefit to local residents and businesses.
“William Street has flourished into a busy commercial street, with many large, popular stores located along this strip,” she said.
“The new roundabout will make the street safer for vehicles and pedestrians, as well as improve access to businesses and the Beckenham Train Station.”
Federal Member for Burt Matt Keogh also welcomed the new roundabout.
“The new intersection confirms the Albanese Government’s commitment to delivering for our community – making people’s journeys faster and safer,” he said.
