Moorabool Shire Council plays an important role in providing a safe travel environment for residents and visitors. A key part of this role includes the implementation of activities directed at reducing the likelihood and severity of road accidents and influencing driver behaviour by working in partnership with key road safety bodies and community groups.
Moorabool Shire Council was successful in obtaining funding for the development of a Community Road Safety Strategy through the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) Towards Zero Grant Program.
Following significant community and stakeholder consultation, a Draft Community Road Safety Strategy has been developed. We now ask the community to provide feedback on the draft strategy from Thursday 5 March to Wednesday 1 April 2020.
The strategy outlines a four-year action plan in line with Safe System Principles (safe roads, safe speeds, safe people and safe vehicles) to assist in promoting safe travel with the aim of reducing serious injuries and fatalities within the municipality and provide a structured approach to guide Council in delivering projects and initiatives that meet the needs of the growing community.
The strategy builds on the positive work already undertaken by Council, acknowledging transport pressures faced, and confirms a commitment to the reduction of casualty accidents in line with Safe System principles of the Victorian Government’s Toward Zero Strategy.
After this period, comments will be reviewed accordingly with the final strategy being presented at the next available Ordinary Meeting of Council for adoption.
For further information, please contact Council on 5366 7100.
