    Previously the City requested your feedback on a proposal to change Beatrice Road into a cul-de-sac and create a new intersection. The redundant road pavement would be removed and replaced with turf and the adjoining crossovers would be extended.

    Based on the feedback received, the City has decided not to proceed with the proposed design. To address the safety issues, the City is working with Main Roads WA to install new line marking and signage to improve the intersection.

    To view the design visit the document library.
