2022-23 Black Spot Program funding starts to flow

The NSW, Northern Territory, and Victorian governments are getting $50.3 million to fix 149 accident black spots in partnership with councils.

NSW will receive $29.5 million under the Commonwealth’s Black Spot Program to remediate 93 sites across the state, while the Northern Territory will get $2.4 million to fix nine dangerous crash sites.

Victoria is getting $18.4 million to improve 47 black spots.

The Black Spot Program funds safety measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at locations where serious crashes have occurred or are at risk of occurring.

The Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics has found that Black Spot projects reduce the number of crashes causing death and injury by 30 percent on average.
