Lives set to be saved in the Electorate of Parkes

Monday, 9 April 2018

Residents of Binnaway have received a major road safety boost with the Coalition Government set to invest $400,000 on Warrumbungles Way under the 2018-19 Black Spot Programme.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Michael McCormack said reducing fatalities and serious injuries on our roads is a key focus of his role as infrastructure minister.

“Accidents on our roads cost Australian’s approximately $30 billion per year – let alone the pain borne by families and friends who have lost loved ones,” Mr McCormack said.

“On average, Black Spot projects reduce the number of  crashes causing death and injury by 30 per cent, making it one of the most effective road safety measures the Australian Government has at its disposal.

“The Coalition Government has extended the Black Spot Programme and is providing $60 million per year from 2021-22 onwards, building on the current $684.5 million investment from 2013-14 to 2020-21.

Federal Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said input from the Binnaway community has been essential in identifying key road upgrades that will save lives.

"Road accidents place a major burden on our region. It impacts on our emergency services, it impacts our daily travel, and most importantly, it places incredible strain on friends and families,” Mr Coulton

said.

“Through this funding allocation a section of Warrumbungles Way, West of Kurrajong Road at Binnaway, will  undergo shoulder improvements including the installation of w-beam barrier.

“None of these projects would be delivered without the community’s vital input, and I’d encourage all residents and motorists in the region to nominate projects for future funding rounds.”
