WA to fund black spot road projects
The government says the emphasis for the project is road safety.

The Western Australian government has committed $22.6 million in funding for 83 projects across metropolitan and regional roads.

The upgrades will target black spots on roads – sites that have been identified as in need of upgrades either through their incident history or a road audit.

The upgrades include road modifications, installation of safety barriers, installation of raised platforms and upgrades to street lighting.

 An additional $6.3 million in funding will also be allocated to help support the projects.

Transport Minister Rita Saffioti says the emphasis for the project is road safety.

"We want each and every person travelling on Western Australian roads to get home or to their destination safely, which is why this work is so important," says Saffioti.

"Each project included within this program is chosen based on data from safety audits or previous incident histories, with the work supporting existing road maintenance and infrastructure delivery underway to reduce overall traffic congestion and improve road safety across our state."
