Black Spot funding programme

Council allocates Black Spot Program funding Shoalhaven City Council has accepted a $5.46 million grant allocation under the Australian Government’s Black Spot Program. The Black Spot Program is a Federal Government initiative designed to reduce the number of crashes on Australian roads by targeting known accident ‘hot spots’. Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash said the Black Spot Program would allow Council to undertake valuable safety works in some of the area’s most pressing locations.
