The Australian Government is changing lives and saving lives by upgrading roads in the Shoalhaven with a crash history.
As the Member for Gilmore and Chair of the New South Wales Black Spot Consultative Panel I’m proud to announce $1.8 million in funding for six BlackSpot projects in the region.
The Australian Government knows the difference safer roads makes to the community and by improving these ‘black spots’ over the next 12 months everyone will benefit.
I’m passionate about keeping people safe on our roads, and on average completed Black Spot road projects reduce fatalities and injuries by 30 per cent.
The Australian Government’s investment in these Black Spot projects will deliver safer roads.
Safety will be significantly improved at the six black spot projects across the Shoalhaven and Eurobadalla.
Shoalhaven projects include:
- Jervis Bay Road, from 200m to 650m south of Woollamia Road, Falls Creek.
- The Wool Road, from 140m to 780m west of Jervis Bay Road, Worrowing Heights.
- Wheelbarrow Road, from 2.0km to 3.2km east of Woodburn Road, Woodburn.
- Paradise Beach Road, Kingsford Smith Crescent Roundabout, Sanctuary Point.
Eurobadalla projects include:
- Eurobodalla Road, from 1.0km to 4.0km west of Princes Highway Bodalla.
- Yarragee Road, from 200m to 1.75km west of Araluen Road Moruya.
I’d like to thank the panel, which reviews priorities for the Black Spot programme, including representatives from the NRMA, NSW Federation of P&C Associations, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia, NSW Police, and state and local government.
