The Federal Government has announced the 147 projects that will be funded in NSW under the 2020-21 round of the Black Spots Program.
The Government has committed $1 billion to the Black Spot Program from 2013-14 to 2022-23 to improve road safety across the nation.
“By specifically targeting road locations with a history of crashes for safety upgrades such as lighting, signage, traffic lights and roundabouts, the Black Spot Program reduces crashes causing injury and death at those sites by around 30 per cent,” Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, the Hon Michael McCormack, said.
“One accident, one injury, one death is one too many.”
The panel which reviews priorities for the program includes representatives from the NRMA, NSW Federation of Parents and Citizens Associations, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia, NSW Police and state and local government.
