Black spots get funding

Swan MHR Steve Irons said it would fix dangerous intersections across his electorate.

�Each of these intersections have been identified as posing a danger for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, which is why I have worked hard to secure this funding commitment which will ensure targeted upgrades are made to these important arterial roads,� he said.

The projects were recommended by a panel of independent road safety experts and will be delivered during the course of 2015�16.

A key benefit of the Black Spot Program is anyone can suggest an intersection or section of road for a safety upgrade.
