We are just putting the finishing touches to a road safety strategy for Porirua City which is focused on maintaining a zero road toll and reducing serious injuries from occurring on our roads by at least 40% by 2030.
Reducing harm and, more importantly, eliminating deaths and significantly reducing serious injuries from occurring on our roads is critical in developing a safe and sustainable transport system for residents and visitors in Porirua City.
We have developed a 10 year road safety strategy, utilising safe system principles to target and reduce road safety risk across Porirua’s transport network.
In addition this strategy builds upon Porirua City’s strategic priorities set out within the growth strategy 2048.
This strategy considers Porirua as a growing city and introduces a strong, systematic and measured approach to addressing future safety risk across the network. This will enable Council to have a wider focus across the whole road network targeting safer speeds, safety around schools & improved pedestrian facilities over future years.
We want you to keep safe when travelling during on the roads. Here's a few of our best tips for drivers.
