TWO traffic ‘black spots’ – one in Osborne Park and one in Mirrabooka – will get $100,000 of Federal funds to be made safer.

The intersection of Main Street and Federal Street will receive $40,000 for an extension of the median island.

Northwood Drive and Chesterfield Road in Mirrabooka will get $60,000 to lengthen the left turn pocket to Chesterfield Road.

Stirling MHR Michael Keenan said the Federal Government had been working on reducing fatalities in the area with the City of Stirling.

“By investing extra money into fixing these dangerous sections of road, we are helping to make our local roads safer,” he said.

Both projects are scheduled to be rolled out between October to December.
