Lives set to be saved in Durack

Lives set to be saved in Durack
 
• The Federal Government has announced the 2018-19 funding allocation for Black Spot projects
• Durack to receive $90,000 under the allocation, with 3 projects set to be delivered
• $5,175,339 has been allocated in Western Australia toward 28 projects, forming a key plank of the Government’s road safety commitment
 
Residents of the Durack have received a major road safety boost today with the Federal Government set to invest $90,000 toward 3 projects under the 2018-19 Black Spot Program.
 
Federal Member for Durack Melissa Price said the Mid-West community’s input had been essential in identifying key road upgrades that will save lives.
 
“None of these projects would be delivered without the community’s vital input, and I’d encourage all residents and motorists in the region to nominate projects for future funding rounds.”

“On average, Black Spot projects reduce the number of crashes causing death and injury by 30 per cent, making it one of the most effective road safety measures the Australian Government has at its disposal.
 
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack said reducing fatalities and serious injuries on our roads was a key focus of his role as infrastructure minister.
 
“Accidents on our roads cost Australian’s approximately $30 billion per year – let alone the pain borne by families and friends who have lost loved ones,” Mr McCormack said.
 
“The Federal Government has extended the Black Spot Program and is providing $60 million per year from 2021-22 onwards, building on the current $684.5 million investment from 2013-14 to 2020-21.
