Road safety

The Department of Transport is bringing together the collective efforts to make transport safer, from heavy vehicle reforms to maritime, road and rail safety initiatives.

Victoria’s road safety partnership is recognised as a world leader, and we’re on track to achieve the Towards Zero target to reduce the number of lives lost on the roads by 20 per cent by 2020.

A strong focus is on making rural roads safer, where people are four times more likely to die on the roads. With more than $800 million being invested in safety barriers, and other treatments on the most high-risk regional roads, road deaths are now trending down in regional Victoria.

More than 2000 km of safety barriers are being installed on the most high-risk roads, as well as new overtaking lanes, rumble strips, intersection upgrades and more drug and alcohol testing.

Car use in the middle and outer suburbs is growing, while short tram trips and cycling are on the rise in inner Melbourne.
