Almost $5 million in black spot funding for Richmond
Road safety in Richmond will receive a boost with a new round of funding under the Federal government’s $500 million Black Spot Program.
The Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams today announced four projects at Byron Bay, Lennox Head, Clothiers Creek and Tumbulgum will receive funding following a recommendation by a panel of independent road safety experts.
The projects are –
- $1,999,000 to install a single lane roundabout and other treatments at the intersection of Ewingsdale Road and Sunrise Boulevard at Byron Bay;
- $1,958.000 to install a two lane roundabout and reduce the speed limit at the intersection of Byron Bay Road and Ross Lane at Lennox Head;
- $550,000 to improve the alignment and upgrade the sealed shoulder on Clothiers Creek Road 500 metres west of the Pacific Highway at Clothiers Creek; and
- $290,000 to install raised islands, left turn deceleration lane and other treatments at the intersection of Tweed Valley Way and Riverside Drive at Tumbulgum
They will be delivered in 2016-17.
