DfT launches new £4m road safety scheme

The Department for Transport has launched a £4million road safety scheme, the Road Safety Partnership Grant Scheme, to fund around 20 local highway authorities with innovative road safety policies.
The scheme is designed to promote collaboration, between both local authorities and partners, and bring new road safety schemes into the mainsrtream, and so reduce the number of road deaths.Transport Minister Stephen Ladyman said, 'The Government is on course to meet its commitment to cut the number of people killed or seriously injured in road accidents by 40 percent. But with nine people killed each day important work remains to be done. I want this new money to stimulate imaginative and innovative schemes that will help us to drive down road casualties everywhere.'Authorities must bid for funding, with the closing date January 2. Applicants will be assessed according to proposed objectives, value for money, evaluation, contribution of partners and sustainability of their schemes.
