Who is Transport for NSW?

Transport for NSW is the lead agency of the NSW Transport cluster. Our role is to lead the development of a safe, efficient, integrated transport system that keeps people and goods moving, connects communities and shapes the future of our cities, centres and regions. We focus on improving the customer experience and contract public and private operators to deliver customer-focused transport services on our behalf. We also lead the procurement of transport infrastructure and oversee delivery through project delivery offices and industry delivery partners. Our purpose is to make NSW a better place to live, work and visit. In 2018, we launched Future Transport 2056; our exciting vision to create a modern and connected roads and public transport network that gives people the freedom to choose how they get around, no matter where they live and work.

Who is the lead agency for road safety in NSW?

The lead agency for road safety in NSW is the Centre for Road Safety within Transport for NSW. Bernard Carlon is the Executive Director of the Centres for Road Safety and Maritime Safety.

Who is the Centre for Road Safety?

At the Centre for Road Safety we develop practical solutions to reduce deaths and serious injuries on NSW roads. The way we develop and target our road safety campaigns, work with the community and design our roads and vehicles can greatly affect the outcome of road crashes in NSW. Our Road Safety Plan 2021 sets out priorities to help meet the Road Safety Strategy 2012-2021 targets for reducing deaths and serious injuries on NSW roads. The Road Safety Plan 2021 also positions NSW to work towards a longer term aspirational goal of a zero road toll to support the Future Transport strategy, which is being developed to establish a 40-year vision for transport in NSW.

What does road safety mean for you?

Working collaboratively to deliver evidence-based road safety policy and program solutions that aim to keep all people safe and continually drive trauma reductions.
