Safer roads save lives

Mr Chester said improving road safety throughout Gippsland was important. "$733,950 has been allocated to install 40km/h signs and road markings at local street access points to the local area, upgrades include threshold treatments, speed cushions, compact roundabouts and raised intersections."

"Safer roads save lives. We all have a role to play in reducing road trauma and governments can assist by providing the safest possible roads. Throughout our region, there is still work to be done to improve the safety of the roads," Mr Chester said.

Delivering safety road improvements

Mr Chester also said, "We need to maintain them to make sure they are in the best condition possible for all road users. We all have a role to play in reducing road trauma and governments can assist by providing the safest possible roads."

"The Black Spot Program is unique because it relies on local communities to identify priority road upgrades and it specifically targets road locations with a history of crashes to deliver safety improvements."
