With the current WA State Road Safety Strategy: Towards Zero 2008-2020 expiring at the end of this year, preparations have been underway to shape the next decade of our journey to ensuring no one has to experience the devastating impacts of a fatal or serious crash.
Join us online to hear an update from the Road Safety Commission on progression of the next state strategy, and also from the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) and RAC on what they are doing to help reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured on roads in WA.
This seminar will focus on issues, projects and opportunities, specific to Regional South Australia. Speakers will present on topics that will be of interest to people in state and local government, consultants, students, younger professionals and those interested in how transport and traffic is progressing in Regional SA.
In 2015, the Austroads Board initiated the strategic priority project “Safety at Road Worksites”. This project was initiated in response to emerging issues in many States / Territories with serious crashes occurring at roadworks.
The presentation will be provided by Dr Dan Sullivan who is the Founding Director of “Solutions in Transport”.
An overview is also provided of the national implications of the intended changes to the industry. The presentation will be supported by an overview of the Victorian program for harmonisation presented by James Ritchie.
