BLACKSPOTS IN DUNDAS ELECTORATE TO BE ELIMINATED

Federal Member for Dundas, Philip Ruddock has been advised that $185,000 worth of Federal funding has been made available" for the elimination of several blackspots in the Dundas electorate. These blackspots will be improved by the installation of signals on some corners and through the changing of signals on others to make the comers safer for local drivers and pedestrians.

These long overdue improvements come as a part of the Federal Government's 'Black Spot' program, which is a part of the 1989 commitment of the Government to reduce the national road toll.

The changes within the Dundas electorate are as follows:

Install Signals $80,000

West Ryde Ryde Victoria Rd Adelaide St Install Red Arrow Hold $15,000

Top Ryde Ryde Victoria Rd Blaxland Rd Install Red Arrow Hold $15,000

TOTAL: $185,000

"I welcome this funding from the Federal Government as an active step to make the Dundas electorate a safer place to live. It is hoped that these new signals will play an operative part in reducing the number of car accidents which occur at these corners", Philip Ruddock said.
