The Waka Kotahi investment in safe system Speed and Infrastructure seeks to achieve around half of the Road to Zero target of reducing deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand roads by 40% by 2030. The Speed and Infrastructure Programme (SIP) is therefore a pivotal programme of targeted interventions which have been developed by applying the latest evidence base, and a number of projects are in various stages of planning and implementation.
This presentation will recap the principles and priorities that underpin the work SIP does to codesign these programmes, types of safe system interventions, speak to the delivery progress rates to date (challenges and opportunities), and will reflect on what it’s going to take to create the change we need to see on the network.
David (Rolly) Rowland is the SIP Area Programme Manager at Waka Kotahi responsible for supporting 20 local authority partners across the South Island to reduce the level of harm on their local road networks. Rolly believes that infrastructure builds the backbone for a thriving society, and we have a responsibility to be developing safe infrastructure that allows our communities to flourish today and for generations into the future. As a keen collaborator and effective communicator, Rolly believes in building strong relationships across organisations and communities.
Come along to hear Rolly speak about the work he is doing across the South Island for SIP.
