Safe System Demonstration Project

Posted on: Monday, 7 December 2020 at 12:00:00 AM

Three Local Governments will partner with WALGA's RoadWise in a new road safety initiative. The initiative aims to demonstrate the significant influence Local Governments can have in the prevention of road death and serious injury, through the adoption and application of best practice in road safety.

The demonstration project will see the Shires of Dardanup, Esperance and Manjimup work closely with WALGA’s RoadWise to embed a road safety management system, based on the safe system approach, for improving the safety performance of their local road network.

Putting a road safety management system in place will enable the participating Local Governments to prioritise effort and resources. This will guide actions in working towards a point in time where no harm occurs on local roads.
