More safety improvements on the way

Published: 08 July 2022, Updated: 24 July 2022

Work will soon be ramping up across WA, with 83 upgrades and safety improvements announced as part of the 2022-23 State Black Spot Program.

This program is part of a range of road safety programs improve safety and save lives through a range of methods, including:

  • road modifications;
  • installation of safety barriers;
  • raised platforms
  • new street lighting;
  • safety signage; and
  • line-marking.

The State Black Spot Program directly targets roads with proven crash history or locations identified as high-risk, meaning that the locations that need these upgrades the most are receiving them.

In addition to the State Government’s investment of $22.6 million, local governments have also partnered to provide a further $6.3 million to make these projects happen.
