Road safety

The Northland Regional Council (NRC) together with the Northland Transportation Alliance (NTA) facilitates tri-monthly 'Northland Road Safety Forum' meetings, jointly facilitates a number of other initiatives with partners that includes the freight sector (heavy vehicles) and motorcycling training and safety initiatives.

While the ‘Forum’ is an Advocacy group, the Road Safety Action Planning team is the planning group working with NZTA for road safety in Northland. Collectively it has developed and implemented a range of evidence based road safety activities under successive Regional Land Transport Programmes/Strategies and Regional Road Safety Action Plans.

Bi-monthly collaborative road safety reports are also submitted to the Regional Transport Committee who oversee and sign off the Regional Land Transport Programme on the work of the Road Safety Action Planning team that includes all Northland Councils, NZTA, Police, ACC, DHB and appropriate road safety contractors.
