ROAD safety has received a boost in the eastern suburbs with the Federal Government investing more than $400,000 towards projects under the black spot 2018-19 funding round.

The approved projects in the Shire of Toodyay include Julimar Road between Sand Spring Road and west of Dreyer Road, plus plans to widen the seal in West Toodyay.

Improvements in the City of Swan will be made to Campersic Road from Hardwick Road about 1.6km north to Carmarque Drive.

Funds will also be spent on shoulder seals in Millendon along with the installation of centre lines, edge lines and reflective raised pavement markers.

Member for Pearce Christian Porter said community input helped identify the road upgrades.

“The history and notoriety of each black spot location will be recognised by local residents who use these roads regularly and these approved upgrades will reduce the chance of an accident,” he said.

“None of these projects would be delivered without the community’s vital input, and I’d encourage all residents and motorists in the region to nominate projects for future funding rounds.”
