A fake pedestrian crossing is popping up on a suburban road, confusing drivers.

The crosswalk was painted on a street in Rockingham, near Perth, with warnings from a city council member who said it poses a security risk.

Matthew Whitfield, of the council, then posted a photo of the crossing on Facebook and said it had not been approved by the council.

& # 39; This is not a supervised crossing and does not meet safety standards & # 39 ;, he wrote.

& # 39; I'm not sure who painted this (in all honesty they did a great job!) And would love to hear from someone about it (someone has been noticed who painted a pedestrian crossing on a pretty busy road!).

& # 39; The city will remove these markers as quickly as possible. & # 39;

Whitfield suggested that a & # 39; frustrated resident & # 39; perhaps painted the crossing.

The fake pedestrian crossing is only a few meters away from a legitimate intersection, a roundabout, a school and a busy shopping center.

Mr. Whitfield said the fake walkway posed a significant safety risk.

& # 39; It is in a dangerous location and it is too close to a roundabout. It's confusing people, & he said Nine news.

Despite his concerns about the location, Mr. Whitfield said he was impressed by the reconstructed crossing.

& # 39; Actually, someone, I will be honest, has done an incredibly good job replicating a pedestrian crossing. I have no idea who and no idea why, & he said.
