Western Australia’s capital Perth is Australia’s fourth most populous city with 1.83 million residents. It sits where the Swan River meets the southwest coast and its suburbs sprawl along the white sandy beaches. The two most popular attractions in Perth have to be the vast Kings Park and Botanic Gardens on Mount Eliza as they offer stunning views of the city skyline.
Due to its growing population and popularity with tourists, Perth’s traffic has become congested particularly during the morning and afternoon commutes. This is why it’s easy to understand that there has been an increase in the number of traffic accidents and incidents.

TOW has even developed a handy find me tool that will let you know where you are if you’ve broken down in an unfamiliar place. That way we can always get to you within one hour from you call.

THE WORST ROADS IN PERTH
Perth is Australia’s fourth largest city by population and is the fastest growing capital city according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. So it’s no wonder that the roads have gotten a lot busier and a lot more congested during the daily commute. TOW recommends that you give yourself ample time to arrive at your destination and not to rush if you are running late. As the saying goes, ‘better to arrive late than not arrive at all’.
According to the RAC, the top 10 worst intersections in Perth are-
Malaga Drive / Reid Highway, Noranda
Nicholson Road / Garden Street, Canning Vale
Tonkin Highway / Horrie Miller Drive, Perth Airport
Baufort Street / Walcott Street, Mount Lawley
Beechboro Road North / Gnangara Road, Lexia
Erindale Road / Reid Highway, Balcatta
Lord Street / Reid Highway, Dayton
Burns Beach Road / Connolly Drive, Currambine
Kwinana Freeway / Roe Highway, Jandakot
Bibra Drive / North Lake Road, Bibra Lake
The Head of Advocacy at RAC revealed that there were 238 accidents on the Reid Highway-Malaga Drive intersection, with a crash cost of over $12.7 million. To add to this, the average speed during peak hour along this stretch of road is just 40km/h, which is half of the speed limit. This easily makes it Perth’s worst intersection.
The RAC also conducted a survey to find out how this congestion was affecting the people of Perth. The top four responses as a result of congestion are-
68% have increased stress
64% avoid peak periods
61% have been late to work or an appointment
46% spend less time with family
In its annual AAMI Crash Index report, the national car insurer revealed that Albany Highway in Cannington is the worst hotspot for motor accidents in Perth. AAMI found that the top five hotspots are heavily congested areas that experience a lot of traffic during the peak period.
AAMI has reported that the top five crash hotspots in Perth are-
Albany Highway, Cannington
Wellington Street, Perth
Wanneroo Road, Wanneroo
Canning Highway, Applecross
Joondalup Drive, Joondalup
Of the drivers involved in a crash, 78% of them stated that the accident was avoidable. And not surprising to women, men were the worst offenders (32% men vs 24% women). The top five causes of accidents include-
Other driver/s 46%
Distraction / Loss of concentration 28%
Bad weather 12%
So please take your time and focus on the task at hand. However, if you do find yourself in an accident give our friendly team a call and we will dispatch a tow truck to you within an hour to get you off the road safely.
PLANNED ROAD IMPROVEMENTS
The Government recently announced a $40 million investment in Main Roads to target the known congestion hotspots across Perth. This investment will be spent on modifying key intersections, expansions of digital information signs and new road markings on freeway on-ramps to assist with merging. The funding will also go to Main Roads’ rapid incident response service to expand its hours and geographic spread.
The key strategy is to get the congestion moving for Perth locals with funds being invested in-
Reconfigurations to the intersection of Graham Farmer Freeway and East Parade in East Perth,
Second dedicated right-turn lane on East Parade approaching the freeway,
The Mitchell Freeway will get an extra northbound lane,
Marmion Avenue will see improvements at the intersection of Hepburn Avenue and Whitfords Avenue,
Additional southbound and northbound lane at Hepburn Avenue intersection,
On Canning Highway, 10 intersections between Stock Road and Henley Street will have right-turn lights turned off between 9pm and 6am (trial period).
