Funds for road fix

Canning Gazette - - NEWS - Carmelle Wilkin­son

fund­ing is a very im­por­tant con­sid­er­a­tion in the City be­ing able to de­liver these projects in a timely fash­ion, and re­spond to the chang­ing de­mands of our vast trans­port net­work,” Mr Ng said.

More than $25 mil­lion had been al­lo­cated through the Black Spot Pro­gram to up­grade 117 lo­ca­tions through­out WA, with 63 roads in the metropoli­tan area and 54 re­gional roads to ben­e­fit.

Trans­port Min­is­ter Rita Saf­fi­oti said the pro­gram was de­liv­er­ing real safety ben­e­fits to road users.

“Since its in­cep­tion in 2000, the Black Spot Pro­gram has de­liv­ered al­most half a bil­lion dol­lars in spe­cific safety ini­tia­tives on the WA road net­work,’’ she said.

“The pro­gram aims to fur­ther im­prove road safety across the state, re­duc­ing the sig­nif­i­cant trauma and suf­fer­ing of crash vic­tims and their loved ones by tar­get­ing sites with a proven crash his­tory or those with a high risk.”
