Premier Mark McGowan has announced almost $800,000 worth of Black Spot funding to upgrade roads in the Murray-Wellington area. 

In the Shire of Boddington, $434,000 has been allocated to finish upgrades to Pinjarra-Williams Road, while the Shire of Harvey will receive a further $333,333 for the Logue Brook Dam Road. 

$13,000 has also been allocated to complete the second stage of widening and sealing works, on Honeymoon Road.

Mr McGowan said the government will be investing over $2 billion on building, upgrading and maintaining regional roads over the next year. 

"The Black Spot program means the local roads we frequent can be upgraded to improve road safety for everyone - whether they are drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists or pedestrians," he said. 

Since the introduction of the Black Spot program in 2000, almost half a billion dollars has been invested in safety initiatives for West Australian roads.
