Black spots get fund­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Street Watch -

THE Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment will make five black spots in the South­ern Gazette area safer with the an­nounce­ment of fund­ing for lo­cal road in­fra­struc­ture.

Swan MHR Steve Irons said it would fix danger­ous in­ter­sec­tions across his elec­torate.

“Each of th­ese in­ter­sec­tions have been iden­ti­fied as pos­ing a dan­ger for mo­torists, cy­clists and pedes­tri­ans, which is why I have worked hard to se­cure this fund­ing com­mit­ment which will en­sure tar­geted up­grades are made to th­ese im­por­tant ar­te­rial roads,” he said.

The projects were rec­om­mended by a panel of in­de­pen­dent road safety ex­perts and will be de­liv­ered dur­ing the course of 2015–16.

A key ben­e­fit of the Black Spot Pro­gram is any­one can sug­gest an in­ter­sec­tion or sec­tion of road for a safety up­grade.
