BOOST FOR SAFER ROADS IN TWEED

Nationals Member for Tweed Geoff Provest has welcomed the announcement by the Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams of 4 new projects to be funded under the Black Spot Programme.

The projects in Tweed Shire are –

• $360,000 to re-profile the curve on 300 metres of the Tweed Coast Road north of Crescent Street at Chinderah
• $270,000 to install a single lane roundabout at the intersection of Terranora Road and Fraser Drive at Terranora
• $242,500 to widen the inside of the curve at the intersection of Clothiers Creek Road and Condor Place at Clothiers Creek
• $224,000 to install a single lane roundabout at the intersection of Gollan Drive and Lakes Drive at Tweed Heads West

Road crashes are a major cost to Australians every year. Black Spot projects target those road locations where crashes are occurring. By funding measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at dangerous locations, the programme reduces the risk of crashes.

“Anyone can nominate a stretch of road or intersection for consideration for black spot funding with the nomination process for 2016-17 funding closing on the 31st of July.
