Regional road safety


In 2021, the NSW Government set a state priority target to reduce road fatalities by 30% by 2021 (from 2008 to 2010 levels) and launched a new road safety plan ‘Toward Zero’. The plan features targeted initiatives intended to meet road safety goals by addressing key trends, trauma risks and the types of crashes occurring on New South Wales roads.

This audit will examine progress to date with a particular focus on regional road safety and review the effectiveness of the design and implementation of select initiatives. The audit will consider how data analytics is used to inform decision-making to achieve improved safety outcomes.
