Funding for 47 new Black Spot projects in Victoria

Dept of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications

Funding under the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program will substantially improve 47 dangerous crash sites on Victorian roads in 2022-23.

The state will receive $18.4 million under the Black Spot Program’s 2022-23 funding round.

The Black Spot Program funds safety measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at locations where a number of serious crashes are known to have occurred, or are at risk of occurring.

The 47 Black Spot projects across Victoria will make an important contribution towards reducing serious injuries and deaths on local roads, and build on previous investments in the state.

Black Spot Consultative Panels provide the opportunity for stakeholders to have a say in the project selection process, and ensure that nominations of the highest priority and importance to the local community are recommended for approval.

The panel that reviews priorities for the program in Victoria includes representatives from the Traffic Management Association of Australia, Victorian Transport Association, Victoria Police, Road Safety Victoria, the Royal Automobile Club of Victoria and the Victorian Department of Transport.
