The Wheatbelt Shires of Chittering and Toodyay were recently awarded Federal Black Spot funding for projects in their respective Shires. In Toodyay a bend on Julimar Road near the intersection of Toodyay West Road in West Toodyay with significant crash history is to be re-aligned and the seal widened, with raised pavement markers and delineation.

The Safe System mantra to road improvement works acknowledges that while drivers will always make mistakes and cannot drive perfectly all the time, a person should not be killed or seriously injured as a result. The typical approach to roads and roadsides is to treat known black spots with road widening, improved sight lines, pavement marking and signage, and removing roadside hazards, thus reducing crash risk and making the roads safer for all.

The works are scheduled for the 2020-2021 Financial year and will be carried out by Local Government crews.
