Mobile black spot database input sought
September 28, 2018
Local governments will be able to nominate dangerous roads or intersections after the Federal Government reopened the Mobile Black Spot Program's Database of Reported Black Spot Locations.
Federal Members of Parliament and local councils can make submissions on behalf of their constituents to the national mobile black spot database.
Environment Minister Melissa Price said the database would be open for four weeks and called on residents to contact her office to nominate mobile black spot areas.
"The nominations will support round four of the program which will look to provide new or improved mobile coverage in areas where there are clear economic and social benefits," she said.
"Round four will also look to target medical, educational and emergency services facilities, as well as along key transport routes and in towns that experience seasonal demand due to tourism."
The Federal Government will invest $25 million to deliver round four of the program and will soon call for applications from carriers to be selected through a competitive process.
