WALGA congratulates the Shire of Cranbrook, category finalist and recipient of the Road Safety Encouragement Award in the Local Government Initiatives category. The Shire was recognised for safety benefits gained from the closure of the Frankland-Cranbrook East Road (commonly referred to as the Northern Two Mile) and the impact the reduction in heavy vehicles has had on the safety of residents living in a built up area.
Congratulations is also extended to the City of Albany (Share the Road Community Awareness Campaign) and the City of Joondalup (Shepherds Bush Park Bike Skills Track), also named as finalists in the Local Government Award category.
The ‘Please Slow Down, Consider Our Kids’ bin sticker project was also recognised as a finalist in three award categories, receiving a Road Safety Encouragement Award. Close to 250,000 bin stickers have been distributed throughout WA, with more than 60 Councils and community groups using the stickers to engage with the local community to help reduce travel speeds.
School Drug Education and Road Aware (SDERA) received the 2017 Founders Award, for their ‘Keys for Life’ program delivered to year-10 students to mitigate accidents and fatalities involving pre and novice drivers. Congratulations, SDERA.
