Black Spot Program

About the program

The Australian Government has extended the Black Spot Program and is providing $60 million per year from the 2021 to 2022 financial year onwards, building on the current $684.5 million investment from the 2013 to 2014 financial year to the 2020 to 2021 financial year.

Road crashes are a major cost to Australians every year. Black Spot projects target those road locations where crashes are occurring. By funding measures such as traffic signals and roundabouts at dangerous locations, the program reduces the risk of crashes. Programs of this sort are very effective, saving the community many times the cost of the relatively minor road improvements that are implemented.

The Black Spot Program makes an important contribution in reducing the national road toll under the National Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan 2015–2017.
