- Works to improve safety at dangerous black spot
- $1.97 million funding under Australian Government’s Black Spot Programme
Works have commenced on the $1.97 million safety improvement project along a section of Pumicestone Road, east of the Bruce Highway in Caboolture.
Queensland LNP Senator James McGrath said the safety improvement works on Pumicestone Road were funded through the Coalition Government’s Black Spot Programme which is a key component of the Government’s commitment to reduce crashes on Australian roads.
“The Coalition Government’s record $50 billion infrastructure investment is delivering the infrastructure Australia needs and improving our national road and freight network,” Senator McGrath said.
“The Black Spot Programme has been an incredibly successful road safety initiative targeting locations where crashes are occurring,” Senator McGrath said.
“It makes an important contribution in reducing the national road toll.”
Senator McGrath said the project to realign a section of Pumicestone Road, about one kilometre east of New Toorbul Point Road, commenced this week.
“This section of Pumicestone Road has been identified for upgrades to reduce the number of crashes at the location,” he said.
“The project aims to improve safety by realigning and sealing the shoulder of the road.
“Works for the project are expected to take three months to complete, weather permitting. I thank motorists for their patience while these important works are delivered.”
The $1.97 million Pumicestone Road upgrade was fully funded by the Australian Government under the Black Spot Programme.
