Road safety

Willoughby community invited to suggest ideas to help with road safety

The community of Willoughby is invited to help Council develop a new road safety plan by completing a short online survey before December 11th.

The survey asks respondents to name factors which they believe reduce road safety in the LGA of Willoughby, potentially including road user behaviour, law enforcement, road infrastructure and boundaries of speed.

It also asks respondents to name the main ways in which Willoughby City Council could improve road safety.

“While deaths and injuries on NSW roads have been trending down steadily for decades, road trauma is still a serious problem and we must do all we can to eliminate the risk of these incidents happen,” Willoughby Mayor Tanya Taylor said.

“We urge all members of the Willoughby community, including visitors, to complete this survey to create the strongest possible database to help us create the Willoughby Road Safety Plan.”

The survey is relevant to all road users, including motorists, pedestrians or cyclists, as well as users of motorbikes, taxis, carpooling and public transport.

To take the survey, go to https://www.haveyoursaywilloughby.com.au/help-us-create-a-willoughby-road-safety-plan by December 11.

The Road Safety Plan, which will be a supporting plan to the council’s existing Willoughby 2036 Integrated Transport Strategy, is due to be set out in 2023.
