ROAD SAFETY IN THE VICTORIAN HIGH COUNTRY SURVEY

We’re calling on everyone who lives in or visits Victorian High Country to help us improve road safety. 

The Amy Gillett Foundation, in partnership with Monash University, RMIT and the Alpine Shire Council, is working to improve road safety outcomes for cyclists and drivers sharing roads in the Alpine area. 

Until November 1, you can have your say and help us improve road safety in Bright and surrounding areas by completing a short survey about your experience sharing the roads. 

It only takes 8 minutes to complete and you’ll be eligible to win one of three $100 Buy from Bright gift vouchers.

This project aims to improve road safety by providing clarification of rules, providing visual reminders that safety is everyone’s responsibility and developing empathy between all road users. By generating insights from the local community and visitors to Victorian High Country, we will develop an education and awareness raising campaign that promotes safe behaviours on the road. 

This project is funded by the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) through the Towards Zero Community Grant Program.

We’re thrilled to be working with the Alpine Shire Council on this important project to improve safety outcomes for everyone sharing the road. Grassroots community work is vital to improving cyclist safety and we value your input to help us better understand the barriers that exist on local roads so that we can continue our work to create a safer cyclist environment in Australia.

The AGF is pleased to be working to improve cyclist safety for people living in regional and rural parts of Australia, areas that often don’t get the support they need. As a proud ongoing charity partner for the Alpine Classic, we understand that this region is well-loved and much visited by keen cyclists across the country. 

We encourage you to take this opportunity to have your say and help us continue our commitment to making it safe for cyclists to share the road in this area.
