Local road safety projects boosted by grants - Waldron

For more information, contact Terry Waldron (Member for Wagin).

Local Member Terry Waldron MLA has welcomed a grant for the Gnowangerup Resource Centre for the Gnowangerup Summer Fair, from the State Government’s Road Safety Community Grants Program.

A $900 grant has been allocated to help promote road safety in the Wagin electorate, at the local fair.

“The Gnowangerup Summer Fair is a community driven event aimed at celebrating the Shire and its people.  The fatigue road safety message will be promoted at this event,” Mr Waldron said.

Twenty-three WA community groups will share in $49,570 in the latest round of the State Government’s road safety grants, which support Western Australian communities locally producing projects that have a focus on road safety.

“Road safety is a shared responsibility and these grants will continue to encourage community groups to participate in a range of road safety initiatives,” Mr Waldron said.

A total of $360,000 is available from the Road Trauma Trust Account, for community groups under the Road Safety Community Grants Program in the 2016/17 financial year.
