This is your Chance to have your Say!
The City of Greater Bendigo is seeking community input into the development of a new Greater Bendigo Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan 2022-2027. One of the identified priorities is focusing on providing a safer environment through a shared responsibility for the safety of all road users – cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists & drivers.
The council wants to know what the community thinks about providing better safety for drivers, pedestrians, cyclists and public transport users across Greater Bendigo and how it can be improved. This could include your views on safer shared paths like the O’Keefe Rail Trail and other urban trails, especially where they intersect with streets and highways.
Its your chance to participate, to highlight hazardous situations or the lack of infrastructure and to voice your concerns for the interests of cyclists, road safety and infrastructure. Don’t put it off, have your say NOW and complete the community survey via this link (www.letstalkgreaterbendigo.com.au/road-safety-strategy-action-plan) by March 28th.
