This Government is making roads safer through a $2.575 million investment in 2021-22 Black Spot funding for four roads across our community.
This new funding will see total investment through the Black Spot Program in Queensland rise to $189.2 million, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to improving road safety.
The Australian Government has committed $1.1 billion to the Black Spot Program from 2013-14 to 2023-24 to improve road safety across the country.
