NRMA-ACT Road Safety Trust Reports

 

Cessation of Operations and Access to Reports on the ACRS Website

On 4 December 2014 the ACT Government announced that the NRMA – ACT Road Safety Trust would be ceasing operations as from 1 July 2016.  That decision brought to an end the Trust’s twenty five year contribution to enhancing road safety for the ACT road-using community.  During that time the Trust committed close to $21 million to some 450 projects and initiatives, which made a valuable contribution to reducing road trauma on the region’s roads.

For over 10 years GKY Internet mainained the Trust’s website.  With the decision to close the Trust came the challenge of how best to ensure the continued access and availability of these Trust-funded reports.  The Trust was delighted with the offer by the Canberra Office of the ACRS to become the custodians of these reports.  To that end, the ACRS Head Office and GKY Internet have liaised to ensure the smooth transition of the reports.  It is of great comfort to the Trust to know that the high quality service provided by GKY Internet for over a decade will continue under the stewardship of the Head Office of the ACRS.
