Why do we need a road safety group in Mackay, Isaac & Bowen Basin Regions?

The Mackay, Isaac and Bowen Basin regions have one of the highest number DIDO workers, coupled with an extensive highway network. Our roads are busier than ever, with tourism also increasing leading to a high number of road crashes, especially compared to non-regional areas. We are passionate about reducing the road toll and ensuring everyone reaches home safely.

Through advocating for better roads, educating drivers and road users on how to drive safely and the specific issues faced on our regional roads. We do this through providing resources that can be shared throughout the community to help educate on safe road behaviour. These can be viewed here and are free for use: View Resource
