Regional Road Safety Upgrades
The rate of fatal and serious injury road crashes (from run-off-road and head-on crashes) in regional WA is five times higher than the same type of crash in the metropolitan area.
The Regional Road Safety Program will significantly improve road user safety and help to reduce road trauma though the installation of audible edge lines and sealing of road shoulders to provide a more forgiving road environment.
These much needed road safety treatments are being delivered across the state with $455 million being invested to upgrade up to 7,000 kilometres of roads by July 2022.
When complete, up to 50 per cent of the State’s regional road network will be upgraded, helping to prevent up to 2,000 fatal or serious injury crashes.
