Summary of outcomes and key learning points from the projects which benefited from the Road Safety Partnership Grant programme.
To further support local highway authorities in delivering casualty reduction targets locally, an annual £4million Road Safety Partnership Grant programme was launched at the end of October 2006, inviting bids from all local highway authorities in England.
The programme promotes a collaborative approach to all aspects of delivering enhanced road safety. In particular it aims to encourage partnerships between traditional road safety professionals and other service providers including the education sector, the health sector, the fire service, the youth service and the voluntary sector. It also hopes to stimulate road safety schemes which produce environmental and regeneration benefits.
This report provides a summary of outcomes and highlights the key learning points from the projects which benefited from the Road Safety Partnership Grant programme round two, which ran for up to two years from April 2008. It also provides brief summaries of those projects which were agreed in the following round, which are due to complete in March 2011.
