New agreement and CCTV put spotlight on community safety

News Update 29 June 2022

The bright red and yellow indent response vehicles on the Freeway will have two new 'laydown' areas to provide more 'eyes on the street' at local public places.

As part of an agreement between the City and Main Roads WA, two local sites were identified to provide easy access for the incident response vehicles to attend to traffic issues while boosting surveillance around our City.  

The laydown areas are under the Narrows Bridge near Millers Pool in South Perth and at George Burnett Park car park in Karawara, close to the Freeway entry-exit on Manning Road.

Incident response vehicles are used around the clock by Main Road WA, so these new laydown areas give our community the added benefit of increased surveillance around these locations 24-7, particularly at Millers Pool, which is known as a hotspot for hooning activity.

In addition, a CCTV camera is now in place at Millers Pool and speed humps have been installed to help improve safety in and around the car park. 

For more information about this and other initiatives is available on our Community Safety page or email the City’s Community, Culture and Recreation team.
