Local and State Government Road Safety Package
The Australian Government’s $2.2 billion Local and State Government Road Safety Package demonstrates the continued focus on improving safety on road networks across Australia.
The Package increases funding to the following programs contributing to road safety:
- $1.1 billion for the Roads to Recovery Program
- $550 million for the Black Spot Program
- $275 million for the Heavy Vehicle Safety and Productivity Program
- $275 million for the Bridges Renewal Program
This forms part of the government’s $100 billion investment over ten years in transport infrastructure to bust congestion, better connect our regions, improve safety on our roads, and meet our national freight challenge.
