About Us

The Western Australian Local Government Association (WALGA) is the peak industry body for Local Governments in WA.

The role of Local Government in road safety

Local Governments have an important role to play in road safety as owners and managers of an extensive road network representing 88% of WA roads. Almost two thirds of serious crashes occur on local roads, therefore Local Governments have a significant responsibility for ensuring their roads are safe.

Delivering road safety initiatives

WALGA’s RoadWise Program works to build the capacity of Local Governments, the community, and other agencies to effectively deliver road safety initiatives aligned to Towards Zero, Western Australia’s Road Safety Strategy 2008-2020.

Building capacity is achieved by improving individual skills, strengthening community action and empowering organisations to take responsibility for road safety and contribute to better road safety outcomes.
