Community Road Safety Strategy


 It was determined that an update of the 2007‐2012 Community Road Safety Strategy was due and this strategy has been developed as part of the SafeRoads initiative.

The plan is consistent with the Victoria’s Road Safety Strategy and with the Safe System approach adopted by VicRoads

This Community Road Safety Strategy identifies, addresses and prioritises key issues that have arisen from a review of the statistical data and stakeholder consultation with agencies such as Police, VicRoads and emergency services.

This plan draws data from an extensive range of sources, including:

  • The municipal demographics;
  • VicRoads CrashStats Data for the five year period from 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2014;
  • VicRoads Road Safety Performance Information for Ballarat for the period January 2010 to December 2014;
  • Priority Routes and other pertinent City of Ballarat strategies;
  • Relevant Road Safety Strategies and guidance materials
