Black Spot funding: Lady Mary Terrace
The Gympie Times
Lady Mary Terrace intersection response to Black Spot funding:
The State Government Black Spot funding program has allocated approx. $12 million for upgrades across the state, with a maximum of $2 million per project. The eligibility criteria include a minimum number of 3 casualty crashes in the past 5 years. The Lady Mary Terrace and Mellor Street intersection has been recognised to be addressed due to the poor site issues between the two intersections. However due to the size of the project, which will exceed $2 million, the intersection does not qualify or fit the Black Spot Funding criteria as listed by the State Government. Due to the major upgrading required, council will continue to look for suitable funding opportunities.
