Black spot to get much needed repair work

FUNDING has been granted to fix a well known local road black spot.

The Federal Government's Black Spot Program has granted $25,000 to mark road edge lines and install kerb blisters on Park Beach Rd from Walter Morris Cl to Phillip St.

The latest black spot funds were recommended by a panel of independent road safety experts and would be delivered during the course of 2016-17.

"Black Spot funding is all about saving lives," Cowper MP Luke Hartsuyker said.

"If we address accident-prone locations by investing in the infrastructure required to make them safe, we can reduce the risks to road users."
