We’re making regional roads safer in Western Australia as part of the Regional Road Safety Program.

We’re improving 8,500 kilometres of roads with treatments including audible line markings and shoulder sealing. These treatments have been shown to improve road user safety and reduce road trauma.

The program has been underway since 2020 and the future program of works on our regional roads continues to be developed.
