Future without road trauma

Find out how your input and ideas can help to develop a practical, clear plan to guide how we make NSW roads safer.

Focus on saving lives

A new road safety plan is being developed to help meet the Road Safety Strategy 2012-2021 targets for reducing deaths and serious injuries on NSW roads.

The Road Safety Plan 2021 will also position NSW to work towards a longer-term aspirational goal of a zero road toll to support the Future Transport strategy, which is being developed this year to establish a 40-year vision for transport in NSW.

Development of the Road Safety Plan 2021 will draw on:

  • An examination of crash information to understand the factors involved in crashes in NSW
  • Evidence from Australia and worldwide about what has been proven to be effective in saving lives and reducing serious injuries
  • Feedback from stakeholders and the NSW community through a statewide consultation program.
