Has any funding been announced for the Regional Road Safety Package?

In June 2020, the State and Federal Governments announced a funding partnership to deliver the first year of a Regional Road Safety Improvement Program. The $100 million commitment will fund safety treatments to 1,400 kms of WA’s regional roads, such as sealing road shoulders and installing audible edge lines.

RAC has welcomed the funding, which is a critical first step in reducing the unacceptable number of deaths and serious injuries on WA’s regional roads. However we continue to call on government to fund the entire Regional Road Safety Package and commit to upgrading a further 16,000 kms of WA’s regional road network.
