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.

Stakeholder and community consultation

Between February and June 2017, the Centre for Road Safety led a consultation process to gather input from stakeholders and community members including:

  • Ten expert countermeasures workshops
  • Stakeholder meetings
  • Eight public forums in Wagga Wagga, Dubbo, Wollongong, Parramatta, Sydney CBD, Newcastle, Scone and Coffs Harbour
  • An online survey and online forum
  • A social media campaign

The feedback gathered is now being reviewed. More information on the Road Safety Plan 2021 will be released later in 2017.
