The proponent must fully fund the cost of new traffic signal installations. Funding may include contributions under the Black Spot Program or other government programs.

We will monitor traffic signal installations through a series of quality assurance procedures (known as Hold Points) outlined in Standard Section 730, which include:

  • design acceptance
  • Commissioner for Transport approval
  • works permits (if works impact a State road)
  • pre-purchase of signal hardware
  • inspection of signal hardware installation via a site acceptance process
  • receipt of required documentation prior to commissioning
  • commissioning and handover of signals.

Hold Points must be formally signed off by the Department before proceeding to the next step in the traffic signalisation process. The process outlines which steps are to be undertaken by proponents and the Department, including the hold points.
