** IMPORTANT NEWS ** – Council Black Spot Funding 2017
Are you aware of recent changes to the Australian Government Black Spot Program and a number of other NSW Government Safer Roads Sub-Programs, including State Black Spot, Run-Off Road and Head-On, Pedestrian Safety, Local Government Road Safety, Motorcycle Safety, Intersection Safety and Cycling Safety ?
A recent notification from the RMS indicates that applications for Black Spot and other RMS funding for roadworks will generally require a Road Safety Audit report to be submitted in support of the application. As you would be aware, a Road Safety Audit is a formal examination, conducted by an independent and suitably qualified team of professionals. The audit team members need to be certified on the Transport NSW Register of Road Safety Auditors. StreetWise staff have the qualifications and the experience to assist all NSW councils with their future applications for Black Spot and other Safer Roads funding.
StreetWise can also provide the following services:
