Mayor Gail Sellers said areas where serious accidents happened were put under the microscope.

"On notification of a serious accident the section of road is inspected to record current and existing condition," Cr Sellers said.

"(The) council regularly reviews available crash data to determine if accident sites meet required blackspot funding criteria and if so collates a submission for funding."
