Wairarapa Road Safety Council

The Wairarapa Road Safety Council is an incorporated society, it contracts to NZTA (Waka Kotahi) and the three Territorial Authorities Masterton District Council, Carterton District Council and South Wairarapa District Council to deliver approved road safety programmes across the cluster.

Our Mission

To see safer Wairarapa roads increasingly free of death and serious injury.

We support the vision, Road to Zero road safety strategy. 

In December 2019, the Government launched Road to Zero: NZ’s road safety strategy 2020-2030.

On average one person is killed every day and another is injured every hour in road crashes nationwide. The ripple effects of these tragedies are devastating for whānau, friends, communities, workplaces - and our whole country.

Everyone, even great drivers, can make mistakes. We need to stop these mistakes turning into tragedies. Road to Zero strengthens every part of the road system with one priority in mind: peoples’ safety.

Road to Zero articulates our vision, guiding principles for how we design the road network and how we make road safety decisions, as well as targets and outcomes for 2030. It sets out the five areas we want to focus on over the next decade, and a framework for how we will hold ourselves to account.

This strategy will be implemented through a series of separate action plans that will outline the actions we will take to drive change, as well as the timelines and responsibilities for implementing them. Our initial action plan sets out the fifteen immediate actions we will focus on for 2020-2022.
