Shire Receives Black Spot Funding

State Government funding was secured to improve two major roads in the Shire of Harvey, with works getting underway soon.

Premier Mark McGowan and South-West MLA Robyn Clarke announced $347,00 of Black Spot funding to upgrade Logue Brook Dam Road and Honeymoon Road.

The Shire has contributed $167,000 out of its 2019/20 annual budget to upgrade the roads.

Upgrades to Logue Brook Dam Road include the removal of roadside hazards, seal shoulders, install signage and improve delineation.

There has also been $13,000 allocated to complete the second stage of widening and sealing works, on Honeymoon Road, increasing the road width to 6 metres. Once completed roadside hazards will be removed, signs will be upgraded and improved delineation.

Murray- Wellington MLA Robyn Clarke said “having been a long term South West resident I know how important it is that our roads are well maintained and safe.”

Premier Mark McGowan said more than $2 billion will be invested in building, upgrading and maintaining regional roads in the 2019-20 State Budget.

“The Black Spot Program means the local roads we frequent can be upgraded to improve road safety for everyone – whether they are drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists or pedestrians.”
