Pedestrian, Cyclist and Road Safety Strategy

Council is currently preparing to undertake a Pedestrian, Cyclist and Road Safety Strategy.  The strategy will look at road safety as a whole and will focus on how different road users interact on and around the Borough of Queenscliffe roads.

This strategy will identify measures that the Borough of Queenscliffe can undertake to improve the safety of all road users and, will be supported with action plans for achieving these targets.
