A Consultation on the Proposed Content of the new Road Safety Strategy for Northern Ireland to 2030

Closed 10 Jan 2022

Opened 15 Nov 2021


This consultation seeks views on the proposed content of the new Road Safety Strategy for Northern Ireland to 2030.

Specifically it seeks views on the proposed approach to road safety and the issues that we need to address including: 

  • The strategic approach that will underpin the new Road Safety Strategy;
  • The proposed targets which the new Strategy will seek to achieve;
  • The key challenges impacting on Road Safety; 
  • The priority areas of focus for the new Strategy;
  • The governance process that should be established for the new Strategy; and 
  • The equality impacts that should be considered as part of the new Strategy.

While the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) is leading on this Strategy it is recognised that all road users have to part to play in the future success of the Strategy by helping to keep our roads safe for themselves and others.

What happens next

The views and comments received during the consultation process will be analysed and inform the preparation of the final Road Safety Strategy which will be published in spring 2022. This will include a high level action plan for 2022/23 outlining measures to be taken forward in the short term.

Following publication of the final strategy, a small number of key performance indicators (KPIs) and related priority actions will be co-designed and co-developed with stakeholders and key delivery partners. As part of this process NISRA will conduct user engagement sessions to consider if the current road safety indicators used to measure the 2020 Road Safety Strategy need to be altered to reflect the new strategy.  Information on the current indicators can be found at https://www.infrastructure-ni.gov.uk/publications/northern-ireland-road-safety-strategy-2020-annual-statistical-report-2021

Following the stakeholder engagement and co-design process, a finalised action plan setting out the actions that will be required to achieve progress and the indicators that will be established to measure success of the Road Safety Strategy to 2030 will be published later in 2022/23. This action plan to 2030 will be kept under regular review.
