Industry Road Safety Alliance

South West Industry Road Safety Alliance

The South West Industry Road Safety Alliance is an independent, collaborative group of industry, Local Government and State Government organisations in an area bounded by Greater Bunbury, Collie, Boddington and Pinjarra.

The goal of the South West Alliance is to mitigate and manage risks associated with industry road traffic in this area with the ultimate aim of improving safety and reducing trauma for all road users.

The South West Alliance aims to achieve this by:

  • Being a strategic road safety group that acts as a conduit of information on local issues and opportunities;
  • Acting as a road safety advocate that identifies and calls for action to improve road safety outcomes;
  • Raising awareness and educating road users about local road safety issues and opportunities;
  • Developing relationships and sharing information between members to improve road safety locally; and
  • Working with other Industry Road Safety Alliances across the State to improve road safety throughout WA.
