COUNCIL HAS A RESPONSIBILITY FOR RESIDENTIAL ROADS WITHIN THE SHIRE
The State Government's Roads and Maritime Services (formerly the RTA) maintains major roads such as Windsor Road, Old Northern Road and Showground Road. It is the RMS' responsibility to make improvements to these roads such as installing clearways along Old Northern Road in front of Castle Towers and Old Northern Road just north of the Seven Hills Road/Windsor Road intersection.
The State Government has stated that competing priorities in funding for other State road projects across the metropolitan area means that some road projects within the Shire, such as the ones mentioned above, are unable to be funded at the present time.
Residents can assist the process by raising RMS road issues with their Local Member of Parliament.
Traffic concerns are often raised by residents and the business community. Generally, people ask about the future of main arterial roads like Showground Road, Windsor Road, and Norwest Boulevarde.
A Key priority of Council’s community strategy is to improve road and traffic facilities to make using our roads safer and more efficient. Council has a number of plans proposed and these form the traffic and transport blueprint.
