New funding across Victoria to increase road safety

By Jamil Allouche

The recently announced Safe System Road Infrastructure Program will be a big bonus for road safety across Victoria, with the state government providing $24million worth of funding to help build road safety initiatives across the region. 

Owners of real estate in Brunswick could be interested in these developments, with minister for road safety Luke Donnellan stating simple measures like the installation of new roundabouts and barriers, and preventative factors like wider shoulders and ripple stripes, will help improve community safety. 

"This is a significant investment in road safety and the funding will see the delivery of much needed safety projects across the state. All road users, whether they are in a car, on a bike, or on foot, deserve to travel in the safest environment possible," said Mr Donnellan in a 20 February statement. 

This comes after the Transport Accident Commission announced a $1billion investment in the state, which aims to reduce serious and fatal accidents by 30 per cent. With this taken into account, now could be a great time to consider moving into the region.
