Delivering safer roads for local communities

26 February 2020

Safety barriers, rumble strips and wide centrelines will be rolled out across NSW’s road network as part of a record $822 million investment into road safety infrastructure upgrades through the Safer Roads Program.

Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Paul Toole said round three of the program would see $258 million invested into 383 projects next financial year.

“These are projects designed to save lives. We are committed to reducing the state’s road toll and the measures we are investing in will prevent the loss of more than 1500 lives and serious injuries on our roads over 15 years,” Mr Toole said.

“We know targeted projects can make a real difference to local communities in both the city and the bush.

“This investment will see $217 million injected into 285 regional projects through Saving Lives on Country Roads, and $41 million into 98 projects through Liveable and Safe Urban Communities for metropolitan NSW.”

Round three of the Safer Roads Program will deliver:

Mr Toole said the Safer Roads Program was a five-year program, with more than $300 million already spent over the last two years to deliver 113 kilometres of barriers, 3,000 kilometres of rumble strips and 2,800 kilometres of wide centreline across the state.
