East Road & Wanneroo Road Intersection

East Road Intersection is on the boundary of Hocking and Pearsall and is one of the major entry and exit points for Hocking and Pearsall residents. Advocacy to take action on this project started as far back in 2004 but as time has gone on we have had the upgrade of the Ocean Reef Road overpass by Main Roads WA and more developments in the local area.

I have restarted this advocacy as I have been contacted by many residents and local businesses in the area. I tabled a motion on notice at the Ordinary Council Meeting in May 2022 to consider the traffic safety issues and an upgrade of the intersection.


  • Minister for Transport has written back to confirm: "I am advised that Main Roads is currently undertaking design investigations in response to a Public Transport Authority request to improve sight lines at this intersection, which are impacting bus and general traffic turning movements from East Road into Wanneroo Road northbound. This work will also investigate and consider the concerns raised in the petition. Main Roads is preparing documentation to nominate this intersection for funding as part of the Black Spot Program."


  • I tabled a petition to the Western Australian Parliament to bring forward black spot funding and upgrades. The petition received a total number of 1,172 signatures which can be viewed here: VIEW THE PETITION

  • The City advises that Main Roads WA (MRWA) recently conducted a Road Safety Audit of the intersection and the report recommendations are currently being reviewed by MRWA and the City's Traffic Engineers. MRWA will investigate opportunities for funding as part of State Government Black Spot Programme.

  • The City has received a letter from Premier Mark McGowan stating that Main Roads and the PTA are currently working on documentation for Black Spot Funding for this intersection.
