HDS Australia has recently completed Black Spot Programme applications for the 2016/17 funding round for Cardinia Shire Council, Brimbank City Council, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Baw Baw Shire Council and the City of Greater Dandenong.
Preliminary (Stage 1) investigations where undertaken by HDS Australia staff at over 50 sites, with detailed applications (Stage 2) being prepared for 26 of these locations. The applications represent over $8 million in proposed road safety improvements in the eastern, metropolitan south east and metropolitan north west regions.
Initial comments from VicRoads staff are expected to be received shortly, prior to final submission of the applications. The announcement of the funding allocations for 2016/17 will be made in mid-2016.
HDS Australia has considerable expertise in providing low cost, practical solutions to improve road safety. We would be happy to discuss providing assistance and investigation services to Councils who are interested in making applications to road safety funding programmes in the future.
