Delivering safe system outcomes in Mildura
Mildura Rural City Council’s Road Safety Strategic Plan embraces a Safe System approach to support a safe community. In delivering the Strategic Plan, a municipal speed limit review was undertaken and speed management plan developed. Revised speed limits, reflecting road environment rather than default limit, were proposed. The expected reduction in fatal and serious injury crashes associated with the proposed new speed limits were evaluated. Findings of the speed limit review, as well as expected fatal and serious injury crash savings are presented. The paper will also consider community response and acceptance of the proposed measures.
