Road Safety Strategy

Road crashes impose a massive and unacceptable burden of death, pain and suffering on Selwyn Roads. The road safety strategy is a critical element in the Council's efforts, along with NZ Police and key partners, to reduce crashes and improve road safety. This is done through a long-term, coordinated framework of projects and programmes.
