Black Spot funding for Ferguson Road

Improvements will be made to a stretch of Ferguson Road in the Shire of Dardanup following allocation by the Federal Government of $300,000 under its 2018/19 Black Spot Program.

The works will occur between Carlaminda Road and Gardiner Road and will aim to improve visibility, remove roadside obstructions and reinstate gravel shoulders.

The Federal Black Spot Program directly targets improvements to the safety of roads with proven crash history or high-risk locations.

Funding for the Program is mainly focused on cost-effective treatment of hazardous road locations.
