Changes have been announced to the Road Black Spot Program.
Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey says the eligibility changes will benefit regional councils.
Mr Ramsay says the Black Spot Program is set to almost triple over the next few years and SA can expect its share to rise to more than $15m per year.
The changes include the following:
• Lowering the 'crash record' criteria
• Lowering the minimum benefit-cost ratio requirement
• Allowing for up to 40% of the budget to be spent on projects on the basis of road safety audits.
