Road Safety

An adopted combined approach of education, engineering and enforcement strengthens Council’s active role in making community roads safer. This is to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents by targeting specific high risk road user groups with localised information. These road safety programs allow Council to plan future strategies that will increase community awareness. The Road Safety Statistical Analysis examines accidents that have occurred in Holroyd, and determines contributing factors and trends. Council can determine who is at risk and then develop projects that will assist those target groups. Holroyd is working towards growing community support, ownership and participating in road safety issues. Council encourages and promotes responsible road user behaviour. Council is currently providing free vouchers to residents for the installation or safety check of child restraints, and running free workshops for supervising drivers of learners to increase their knowledge and skills to best assist from the passenger seat.

To find out more about Roads and Road Safety please phone Nicole Hunt on 9840 9880.
