Spotlight on road safety

Pearce MHR Christian Porter said the Black Spot Program provided funding to priority locations with a history of serious road accidents.

�Spending many hours driving the roads of the Pearce electorate, I understand how dangerous some of the black spots in our community can be,� he said.

�I have been advocating strongly in Canberra for the funding for Campersic Road and it is really pleasing to see that we have been successful in securing this commitment.�

From Campersic Road to Dalgety Road to William Street in Herne Hill, $56,300 has been allocated to seal the road shoulders. Mr Porter said the nine black spot projects in Pearce in 2015-16 would be funded more than $2.5 million.

�Already in 2015 the Government has invested a further $276 million in Pearce, bringing the total of road funding investment in our community to more than $1.2 billion.�
