Lithgow's Bridge Street and Railway Parade have been included as one of the 147 dangerous crash sites across NSW that will become safer under the latest round of the Federal Liberal and Nationals Government's Black Spot Program.
The Australian Government will contribute $165,000 to change the intersection layout from left to right, move the stop and give-way lines forward using kerb extensions and install a pedestrian refuge.
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the state would receive $50.6 million under the Black Spot Program's 2020-21 funding round.
"No matter where you live, the Federal Government is investing in road infrastructure to get Australians home to their families sooner and safer," Mr McCormack said.
"By specifically targeting road locations with a history of crashes for safety upgrades such as lighting, signage, traffic lights and roundabouts, the Black Spot Program reduces crashes causing injury and death at those sites by around 30 per cent.
"One accident, one injury, one death is one too many. Safer roads save lives and these 147 Black Spot projects across New South Wales will make an important contribution towards reducing the road toll."
Assistant Minister for Road Safety and Freight Transport Scott Buchholz said this investment would deliver safer roads in local government areas throughout the state.
"The high-priority locations we are funding have seen a total of 19 fatal and 730 crashes causing injuries recorded over the past five years," Mr Buchholz said.
"We are committed to making sure those living and travelling through NSW are able to do so more safely by providing the infrastructure they want, need and most importantly deserve."
The panel which reviews priorities for the program includes representatives from the NRMA, NSW Federation of Parents and Citizens Associations, the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia, NSW Police and State and Local Government.
