A proper crossing signal at South Beach (Scott St + Marine Terrace)

The South Fremantle community calls on the City of Fremantle, Main Roads WA, and WA State Government to install safer pedestrian crossing signals at the intersection of Scott St and Marine Terrace. This intersection is the only formal crossing into South Beach, with vehicle traffic turning in and out of the public car park, as well as the Fremantle Sailing Club. We propose that the traffic lights incorporate a clearly designated walking phase, and subsequent right turn for exiting vehicle traffic.

When cars are turning right from the sailing club/dog beach onto Marine Terrace, they should be giving way to pedestrians. However, the signage is very small, and many drivers and pedestrians alike do not seem aware of this rule, which can often make it unsafe. This crossing, the only one from Marine Terrace to the beach, can be very busy. With the opening of “Running With Thieves” brewery, this crossing will only get busier.

Your support for this petition will allow us to lobby City of Fremantle, Main Roads WA, and WA State Government for a safer crossing shared by vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists.
