Traffic Route Lighting Subsidy
The provision and maintenance of street lighting is generally a responsibility of Local Government. Roads and Maritime Services has responsibility for the lighting of freeways, large bridges, some tunnels and isolated, mainly rural, intersections.
The Traffic Route Lighting Subsidy Scheme (TRLSS) is a scheme administered by Roads and Maritime Services whereby councils may apply for a subsidy for providing a higher level of lighting than might normally be provided on certain major routes, with the aim of decreasing night time road crashes. The amount of the subsidy depends on the number of certain types of inventory installed as detailed by each council. Two procedures are available to explain how to apply for the subsidy.
