After Dark Road Safety Audit

A night time road safety audit took place by Council's roading contrator Fulton Hogan during May. The audit, lead by Fulton Hogan's Network & Safety Manager Robyn Gardener, involved a network drive of Mackenzie District roads after dark.

Along with support from Andrew ‘Dusty’ Rhodes, and direction from Mackenzie District Council Roading Manager Scott McKenzie, the purpose of the audit is to get an appreciation for what road users experience during the hours of darkness, checking that items such as signage and road markings are clear, in good condition and provide the clear messages for the road users across the district.

The audit will further provide focus on key network routes, focus on known ‘high risk’ spots but also provide opportunity to identify areas or locations that could do with more devices to help road users getting difficulty or more importantly saving lives.
