Roads in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region will receive a $41 million cash injection to improve safety across nine major routes.

Funds will be allocated to routes along the Brookton, Albany, Narrogin and Brand highways, with upgrades ranging from realignment and widening to new overtaking lanes and the installation of audible lines

Transport Minister Troy Buswell says money will also be spent upgrading Cranbrook Road, Indian Ocean Drive, Mimegarra Road and Kellerberrin Road.

"The biggest single project is $10.5million to widen the seal on the York to Merredin Road between York and Quairading," he says.

The $41 million comes from the State Government’s Safer Country Roads initiative. Buswell says $180 million will be spent on Wheatbelt roads in the 2012-13 financial year.
