The state government is improving road safety and traffic efficiency through the installation of a four-way, single lane roundabout at the intersection of Woodside Road and Old Princes Highway at Nairne.
The upgrade will reduce delays for Woodside Road traffic, maintain a good level of intersection performance and cater for future growth. The upgrade also aims to improve safety for pedestrian and cyclist movements in the area, particularly Nairne Primary School students.
The intersection of Woodside Road and Old Princes Highway is on the western outskirts of Nairne within a 50 km/h speed zone. Since the completion of the Bald Hills Interchange project in 2016, traffic volumes at the Woodside Road and Old Princes Highway intersection have increased by approximately 10-15%.
