Road safety

Road safety is an issue of national concern that affects everyone, and whist speed, fatigue and drink-driving campaigns are as relevant here as anywhere, our local communities have specific road safety issues.

Drivers can experience a range of road conditions from unsealed roads, to a newly upgraded freeway connecting our towns to both Bendigo and metropolitan Melbourne where many of our residents work and visit.

We also have a variety of road users to consider, particularly school children and other pedestrians, young cyclists and inexperienced drivers.

Information about road safety initiatives and some of the specific resources that have been developed for road users within the Macedon Ranges are incorporated into our Road Safety Strategy (PDF, 460KB).
