George Henry, Road Safety Manager at Transport Scotland provided an overview on safety on Scotland's trunk road. This started off with the background policy context. This covers: 'Scottish Road Safety Casulty Reduction Targets 2020', 'Strategic Road Safety Plan', 'The Strategic Transport Projects Review' and 'The National Transport Strategy'.
George also outlined how a questionnaire was issued to members of the World Road Association and noted that most leading countries are leaning towards a 'safe system' approach.
The A9 average speed camera scheme was also focused on - see www.A9road.info for more information.
