Livestock SA fully endorses the aim of the new Road Safety Strategy to reduce lives lost and serious injuries on South Australia’s roads.
The widening of rural roads, secure fences on road corridors and the clearing of bushes and trees which obscure vision are key actions required. There is also a continued need for funding to improve the safety of regional and remote roads. This includes the need to install passing lanes and maintaining road verges. Shoulder sealing is also a cheap and mostly effective safety method which can be further implemented.
