A new Victorian road safety council will develop a 10-year strategy to reduce road trauma and improve the safety of the road network.

The Vicorian Government’s Ministerial Road Safety Council will focus on reducing the road toll, and will be chaired by Deputy Premier Peter Ryan, Attorney-General Robert Clark, Roads Minister Terry Mulder and Assistant Treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips.

Premier Ted Baillieu says the Government is seeking feedback from Victorian’s on the make-up of the safety strategy.

"The council will build on the work we’ve already undertaken as part of the Talk the Toll Down campaign, which has engaged regional newspapers to encourage more Victorians to think about road safety," Baillieu says.

A survey and a directions paper, Victoria’s Road Safety Strategy was launched yesterday for feedback.

The 10-year strategy will be released early next year. The survey and directions paper can be downloaded here.
