The State Government's Residents Win road safety grants program is now open for applications.
Residents Win aims to support local road safety projects in partnership with schools, councils and community groups and to encourage projects that help residents create safer local roads and people-friendly streets.
Applicants don’t need have a solution in mind to apply, they just need to submit their road safety issue. Applications can be lodged via a simple online Expression of Interest on the Residents Win website.
The evaluation criteria will prioritise projects that best satisfy the following objectives:
Residents Win adopts a partnership approach to get people and local communities involved in the important area of road safety, as communities often have the best knowledge about what solutions are needed to improve road safety in their area.
If a community identifies a project that will deliver important road safety outcomes, they can apply to the State Government to provide 50 per cent of the project’s costs.
Grant applicants will also be offered support and tools to help them engage their wider community and they will receive help with collecting data to monitor the progress of their project.
The State Government has committed $2 million over four years in grant funding for Residents Win.
For further information or to submit an Expression of Interest via the online application form visit www.residentswin.sa.gov.au.
A new safety campaign has launched to send a powerful reminder to drivers to slow down and play their part in keeping our road crews safe.
Three teams have been awarded the D3 Digital Challenge Launch Pad Award – a $15,000 grant to turn their idea into a prototype to encourage kids to travel actively and safely to and from school.
We have launched our new online Road Works Schedule to provide the community with a forward view of upcoming Departmental road works and traffic restrictions on the arterial road network across the State.
Sections of seven roads in the Riverland, Murray Mallee and Murray Bridge will be resealed improving safety and extending the life of each road.
