Safer roads through community partnerships: recent experience in Tasmania

ARRB Consulting conducted a major independent evaluation of the Community Road Safety Partnerships (CRSP) program in August 2005. The framework for good practice in the Austroads report was used as the framework for the evaluation. CRSP evaluated well on all the major aspects covered: institutional arrangements were well catered for through the partnership of DIER and local government; integration of activities on a geographical basis and in terms of single actions to deal with multiple problems was evident; community visits and the extent of media coverage provided evidence of an informed community; the extent of local government input and local industry sponsorship attested to the mobilisation of local resources; and the existence of a road safety plan for each committee encouraged priority for effective actions. Evaluation reports for four activities were examined in detail and found to compare well with reports from other community road safety programs. This paper discusses what has been learned about the developing road safety partnerships in the first years of operation and the major findings of the 2005 CRSP Evaluation. It also shares the plans to incorporate new local government partners in the future. (a) For the covering entry of this conference, please see ITRD abstract no. E215375.
