Road safety programs

The Black Spot and Regional Run-Off Road Crashes programs deliver vital safety improvements to our roads across the State.

Black Spot Program

Black Spot Programs directly target improvements to the safety of roads with proven crash history or high-risk locations. Funding for the Program is mainly focused on cost-effective treatment of hazardous road locations.

Regional Run-off Road Crashes

The Regional Run-Off Road Crashes program delivers vital road safety improvements to rural roads across the State.

Funded by the Road Trauma Trust Account, the program identifies regional roads with an above average single vehicle run-off road crash risk and prioritises these roads for safety treatments.

Treatments include:

  • Widening roads and sealing gravel shoulders. Sealing gravel shoulders will assist drivers to regain control of their vehicle safely should it leave the road.
  • Installing audible edge lines to warn drivers when drifting off the road.
