One of those sites that's been identified is the intersection of McKinlay and Sutton Streets in Echuca.

$91,000 will go towards installing two concrete splitter islands and associated signage, along with linemarking at the intersection.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development Michael McCormack said the state would receive $38.7 million under the program’s 2020-21 funding round.

“This major investment is part of the Australian Government’s commitment to building safer roads right across the nation,” Mr McCormack said.

“The high-priority locations we are funding have seen a total of nine fatal crashes and a further 521 causing injuries recorded over the past five years.”
