Local government funding

We work with Local Governments to deliver road safety improvements across the state.

The local road network within Western Australia totals more than 125,500 kms, which amounts to 88 per cent of the total state road network. Local roads are managed and funded by Local Governments around WA, with funding assistance from the State and Commonwealth. Managing this increasingly complex road network requires significant resources and a cooperative and productive working relationship between the three tiers of government.

Road Rehabilitation and Improvement

A key aspect of the State and Local Government partnership is to ensure a continued level of funding for local roads. Funding enables road rehabilitation and safety improvements to be delivered to roads identified as high-risk.

Acknowledgement of country

The Government of Western Australia acknowledges the traditional custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders both past and present.
