The Western Australian Government will pour $123 million into local government roads next financial year in an attempt to enhance the state’s basic infrastructure requirements, Minister for Transport Simon O’Brien says.

The spending will target local government road programs, look to increase signage around the state and improve bridge maintenance.

Also set to benefit from the project are Regional Road Groups and the WA Local Government Association.

"The Liberal-National Government knows it is fundamentally important to work with local communities to ensure that investment in local council’s own road networks gets to the right places," O’Brien says.

"The Government that I am part of is getting on with the job of working with local governments to ensure that motorists travelling on local roads are adequately served."
