Upcoming Roadworks Projects 2021
Banksia Esplanade turning pocket closure from 11 January, 2021
The City will be completing the formalised closure of the right turning pocket from Ranford Road into Banksia Esplanade, Canning Vale from 11 January, 2021.
This intersection has been closed for an extended period utilising temporary management measures, and the City is now moving forward with the formalised closure.
Residents wishing to discuss these works are requested to contact the City Traffic Engineering team on: 1300-4-CANNING.
What is happening on Banksia Esplanade?
Due to safety concerns, the right turning pocket from Ranford Road into Banksia Esplanade in Canning Vale will be permanently closed and these works will be carried out in January, 2021.
Why is the right turning pocket from Ranford Road into Banksia Esplanade being closed?
Due to traffic congestion, and vehicles illegally using the bus lane to avoid traffic lights further down on Ranford Road at peak times, a number of accidents have occurred at this intersection in the past.
A number of local residents had raised concerns about this, and as a result, the City had the intersection closed temporarily for a 24-month period.
There have been so serious incidents recorded at this location since the closure.
During this time, traffic management devices were deployed to ensure the closure would be both effective at addressing the issues that were being experienced and that this activity would not unduly impact other residents.
This City is now confident both of the above have been satisfied and will move forward with the formalised closure.

Major roadworks will take place on Ranford Road eastbound between Livingston Drive to Wilfred Road from 11 January; and then along Ranford Road eastbound between Wilfred and Nicholson roads from 27 January, 2021.
These works are expected to take approximately one week for each section, and will occur mostly at night time, in accordance with an approved Noise Management Plan to reduce the impact on nearby homes.

What traffic management will be in place?
For each of the sites, a full road closure will be required between the roads specified.

During the night works, it will not be possible to turn right at any of the intersections when travelling in the opposite direction (e.g. Waratah Boulevard, Queensgate Drive and Eucalyptus Boulevard).
Is this work going to be noisy?
Due to the nature of the work, increased noise levels should be expected during the night works, however works will be carried out in accordance with an approved Noise Management Plan to reduce the overall noise impacts on nearby residences as far as reasonably possible.
Variable Message Boards will be erected prior to the works in each area advising of the proposed work dates.
