Road Safety Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

East Gippsland Shire Council is updating its Road Safety Strategy and is seeking community input from all road users.

The review and updating of the existing strategy will look at areas for improvement and changes to create a new document that is more in line with not only community values but those of other road managers and road safety initiatives. This will support Council working with other road managers and all road users towards the Victorian strategy of “toward zero” (fatalities) on our roads.

As a road manager for a significant geographical area of East Gippsland this document will outline how Council approaches road construction, project planning and the use of the most current best practices with respect to road user safety.

This new document will include:

  • Current crash history data for our region.
  • The role Council plays in the greater strategy of toward zero.
  • Council’s targets and what we do as a community to help achieve this.
  • Council’s action plan to help achieve a reduction in road trauma across East Gippsland.

The new Road Safety Strategy will be launched in 2022.

The development of the new strategy is supported by a grant from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC).

Community Consultation

A public survey will be the first stage in the development of the new Road Safety Strategy. The survey aims to identify problem areas and issues and to get a better appreciation of the conditions and circumstances encountered by all road users, including drivers, riders and pedestrians.

The survey includes questions about why and how you use local roads, frequency, how safe you feel when on local roads and paths, and an opportunity to rate how safe roads are and give feedback on speed limits. It only takes a few minutes and no personal information will be recorded or retained.

Survey results will be used in conjunction with data collected relating to East Gippsland Shire’s road network.

The survey has been reopened and will close on 22 April 2022.

A draft Road Safety Strategy will be available for public comment early in 2022 before the final strategy is considered by Council before June 2022.
