The PTA and the City of Canning built new Peak Period Bus Priority Lanes along Ranford Road, between Bannister Road and Nicholson Road. The bus priority lanes reduce congestion for all road users and significantly improve public transport in the area.
Stage One was completed in 2016, with Stages 2 and 3 completed in February 2017. Stage 4 was completed in mid-2018.
