The Andrews Labor Government is working with the Mildura community to boost safety on Victoria’s roads.
Member for Northern Victoria, Mark Gepp today announced that Mildura’s ‘Drive Safely’ program will receive $30,000 from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) Towards Zero Community Grants Program.
This project intends to encourage safer road behaviours in the community using movable electronic signage, focusing on critical areas determined by consultation with the community.
The timing of this project is vital, as Mildura’s residential areas are now receiving a safety boost from Council’s pedestrian and cyclist road-safety program roll out.
The TAC will give more than $339,000 to 15 community projects focussed on making Victoria’s roads safer.
The grants program provides funding to projects developed and implemented by not-for-profit community groups and local councils across Victoria.
Community groups and local councils can apply for grants of up to $30,000 for projects that address specific issues to boost road safety for residents in their local area.
The next round of Towards Zero Community Grants open in mid-September 2019.
