Road Safety Strategy (2020-2030)

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.

This strategy has a strong alignment with central government priorities on road safety, taking a system wide, multi-agency approach to achieve our goals.

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.
