The Banana Shire Road Safety Management Reference Group is an advisory committee consisting of members of the Queensland Police Service, Queensland Ambulance Service, Department of Transport & Main Roads, Queensland Fire & Rescue and Council. The Committee has been appointed by Council to investigate issues relating to road safety and to make recommendations to Council to address these matters.
Banana Shire Council has received various community requests for the improvement of traffic management on the local streets of Banana Shire. In response to these requests, Council has commissioned the creation of the Road Safety Management Strategy. The Strategy is to help determine where and what type of traffic management works Council should plan and construct on the streets of Banana Shire.
In order to create the best outcome for the Shire, Council asks for feedback from residents regarding the state of the existing road network and locations where you believe traffic management should be constructed to improve safety. Council believes that your experience and knowledge of your local area and the problems which exist within it will be of key importance in assisting Council to create a desirable outcome for the future of the shire road network. You can do this by completing the resident satisfaction survey below and returning it to us.
Attach your completed survey document to an e-mail addressed to council at email@example.com or, print out your completed copy and mail it to us at:
