Road safety forum at Gosford
Peninsula residents can contribute to the 2026 NSW Road Safety Action Plan, according to Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.
"Our local knowledge is so valuable and we can assist in making our roads safe," she said. The plan will include the 2030 trauma reduction targets with a long-term goal to achieve zero fatalities and serious injuries on our roads by 2056.
Ms Tesch said residents could identify local problem areas that often catch visitors by surprise, helping potentially reach the trauma reduction targets.
A forum to discuss road safety issues on April 20 at Gosford RSL Club at 6pm enabled residents to contribute, she said.
"The two-hour forum will focus on issues identified as a safety concern on our roads, along with suggestions of appropriate resolutions to these problems."
Ms Tesch said: "In NSW someone is killed or hospitalised every 41 minutes because of a crash on our roads.
"Over the last Easter weekend period tragically six people lost their lives on our roads in NSW."
"One death is too many and we need to ensure as a collective we do more to try and minimise this threat we currently have."
