Blackspot funds for Ellendale Rd

A SAFETY barrier costing $52,000 will be built along a section of the Ellendale Rd west of the Dunrobin Bridge in the next financial year. Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese and Lyons MHR Dick Adams last week announced the provision of $476,755 to fix five dangerous “black spots” on roads in the electorate. This included $36,750 to install a safety barrier, with the Central Highlands Council contributing a further $15,750;
Mr Adams said since being elected, the Rudd Labor Government had allocated more than $3.1 million to fix 23 black spots across the Lyons electorate. “This investment is helping to make our local roads even safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians, with 11 of these projects already completed,” Mr Adams said. “And the good thing about our Black Spot program is that anyone can suggest an intersection or section of road they believe should be considered for a safety upgrade. “Nomination forms are available from my office.  Alternatively, they can be downloaded from: www.nationbuildingprogram.gov.au.”
