Councils are encouraged to apply to the Black Spot Program to address known risks on their local roads.
The Federal Government allocates $110 million per year to the Black Spot Program, which targets roads where crashes are occurring or are at a risk of occurring; and includes safety measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts.
Applications are open for state and territory governments, local governments, community groups and associations, road user groups, industry and individuals.Applying for Black Spot funding involves completing a form and submitting it to the local state or territory Consultative Panel for consideration.
Black Spot funding is only available to projects submitted through the nomination process, so councils are encouraged to take the time to make a submission.
