Office of Road Safety

The Australian Government established the Office of Road Safety on 1 July 2019 to provide national leadership and coordination to improve road safety outcomes.

The Government recognises that solutions will require action by all levels of government as well as the participation of the non-government sector, industry, academia and communities.

The establishment of the Office of Road Safety and its work in leading development of the next National Road Safety Strategy represents a key opportunity to build new partnerships, and strengthen existing ones, as we move towards the elimination of road trauma in Australia.

  • $2b Road Safety program announced

    The Australian Government has announced a new $2 billion Road Safety Program, providing for the fast roll out of lifesaving road safety treatments on rural and regional roads and greater protection for vulnerable road users, like cyclists and pedestrians, in urban areas.

  • National Road Safety Data Hub

    The Australian Government is investing $5.5 million in a National Road Safety Data Hub. The Data Hub will ensure transparent monitoring and evaluation of policies and investments in road safety and will support our commitment to deliver the new National Road Safety Strategy over the next decade.
