Invitation: WALGA RoadWise Road Safety Workshop Series

Posted on: Tuesday, 17 September 2019 at 12:00:00 AM

Local Government staff, Elected Members and members of the road safety network are invited to attend a free road safety workshop hosted by WALGA's RoadWise.

In this workshop, David McTiernan, State Technical Leader NSW, and National Leader Transport Safety from the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) will present key findings from his peer-reviewed paper, "Road Safety – Is It a Local Government Priority? (What Does the Experience Suggest?)".

Crashes occur on local roads every day and represent just over half of all fatal and serious injuries each year across the Australian and New Zealand network.

Local Governments are the road authority responsible for local roads and as such, have a responsibility to ensure the safe mobility of their road users.

Two case studies will be presented to assist discussion about some of the systemic failures that contribute to Local Councils not taking, or not being able to take action to make road safety a genuine priority. An opportunity for discussion will follow. 

Workshop details:

  • Date: Monday, 14 October
  • Time: 9.30am - 11.30am
  • Location: Boardroom, WALGA, Level 1, 170 Railway Parade, West Leederville

Please register your attendance by email to Katherine Celenza at kcelenza@walga.asn.au before Monday, 7 October.
