$400,000 to fix local black spots in Lindsay

Media Release

JB033/2015

20 April 2015

Joint release with:

Fiona Scott MP

Federal Member for Lindsay

Assistant Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Jamie Briggs and Federal Member for Lindsay Fiona Scott today announced $400,000 to fix five dangerous black spots on local roads.

The approved projects are:

  • Intersection of Gascoigne Street and Phillip Street in Kingswood: $160,000 to install a single lane roundabout;
  • Parkes Avenue from Victoria Street to Werrington Road in Werrington: $80,000 to install pedestrian refuges near Albert Street and near Princess Street, upgrade signage and line marking and install wire rope safety barrier;
  • Intersection of Dunheved Road and Tasman Street in Cambridge Park: $60,000 to install a median island ‘Stop’ treatment;
  • Intersection of Kurrajong Road and Boronia Road in North St Marys: $60,000 to install a central median island, curve alignment markers and raised pavement markers on the centre and edge lines; and
  • Intersection of Terrybrook Road and Fifth Avenue in Llandilo: $40,000 to install median islands and additional ‘Stop’ signs in both legs of Fifth Avenue.

The projects were recommended by a panel of independent road safety experts and will be delivered during the course of the coming financial year (2015–16).

The Australian Government's record commitment of $500 million to the Black Spot Programme in the 2014 Budget will fix more roads than ever before.

As a result of our additional investment, an extra 110 projects will be funded in New South Wales over 2015–16.

Based on the outcomes typically delivered by black spot projects, these extra projects are expected to save an additional 13 lives and prevent 671 injury crashes over 10 years, and deliver economic dividends of around $214 million.
