The Black Spot Consultative Panel Main Roads Western Australia PO Box 6202 EAST PERTH WA 6892
Community groups, local Councils and individuals have the chance to make their community’s safer by nominating dangerous roads for improvements via the Federal Government’s Black Spot Program.
Western Australian Senator and Chair of the Western Australian Black Spot Consultative Panel, Hon Dean Smith, said almost $7million worth of projects had recently been announced for WA black spots, but there was much more to be done.
“Western Australia is a massive State and with the right submissions, we should get our fair share of the $500 million Black Spot Programme provided by the Federal Government to fix our most dangerous local roads,” Senator Smith said.
“By funding measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at dangerous locations, the programme reduces the risk of crashes, saves lives and reduces the trauma accident victims and their families suffer.
