More than $90,000 of black spot funds for Maggs Hill Rd

THROUGH the national Black Spot Program, $93,000 will be spent repairing Maggs Hill Rd from Main St to Doolong South Rd at Nikenbah.

Federal Member for Hinkler Keith Pitt said the work would include installing additional signage, roadside barriers and sealing pavement at intersections.

Roads in the Bundaberg region also received funding with the projects recommended by a panel of independent road safety experts and will be finished 2015-16.

Mr Pitt said, as a result of the Australian Government's record infrastructure investment, an extra 42 projects would be funded in Queensland in the next financial year.

"Black spot funding targets dangerous roads to save lives and reduce road trauma, ensuring our local road network is safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians," he said.

"Anyone can suggest an intersection or stretch of road they believe should be considered for a safety upgrade."
