$3 million to fix 12 of the worst black spots

PAGE MP Kevin Hogan has announced almost $3 million in funding to fix 12 dangerous black spots on local roads across the Page electorate.

Included in the approved projects is a $46,060 upgrade of the intersection of Prince St and Oliver St in Grafton, a $273,470 of works on Rogan Bridge Rd, Seelands and $429,360 to a section of Armidale Rd at Nymboida.

Mr Hogan said this investment in black spot projects will deliver safer and more efficient roads in the Northern Rivers through targeted upgrades proven to deliver results.

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