Black Spot Program Funds Set to Save Lives in Penrith

Posted: 2 Sep 2018
Some of Penrith’s accident hot spots are set for a safety upgrade thanks to funding provided through the Morrison Government’s Black Spot Program.

Assistant Minister to the Deputy Prime Minister, the Hon Andrew Broad MP, said the Government has committed $300,000 to upgrade two notorious road accident spots in Penrith.

The two sites are:

  • Andrews Road and Greygums Road, Cranebrook – installation of one lane roundabout; and
  • Pendock Road, Cranebrook – installation of intersection and/or pedestrian crossing improvements.

“The Coalition Government is committed to making roads safer in Penrith and right across the nation and our Black Spot Program is reducing crashes causing injury by 30 per cent,” Mr Broad said.

“The Black Spot Program specifically targets road locations with a history of crashes to deliver safety improvements such as road widening, increased lighting and signage and installing traffic lights and roundabouts.”

Liberal Senator for Western Sydney, Marise Payne said the local community’s input had been critical to identifying key black spots in the electorate.

"Road crashes place major emotional strain on all affected communities, but particularly on the families and friends of the victims,” Senator Payne said.

“The Morrison Government is committed to getting people home safer and quicker and I’m pleased to see that the people of Penrith will benefit from that.

“Black spots are notorious for a reason, and in delivering this funding I hope that further road crashes can be avoided.”

North Ward Liberal Councillor Ross Fowler OAM, thanked Senator Payne for her continued support for safer local roads.

“As a City, we’re very thankful for the Federal Government’s support, and for Senator Payne’s promotion of these two projects,” Cr Fowler said.

“This funding will be greatly appreciated by the community, particularly for residents in Cranebrook, and will help improve road safety.”

The Coalition Government is providing $744.5 million to the Black Spot Program between 2013-14 and 2021-22 to improve road safety across the nation. For more information on the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program, or to nominate a black spot, visit the website.
