The outcomes achieved by this project were:
- Identification of key road safety initiatives.
- The development of a Regional Road Safety Strategy and action plan for the Toowoomba Regional Council / Eastern Downs Regional Road Group area.
- Intention to appoint a Road Safety Officer to coordinate road safety across the region.
