Commissioner seeks ideas to keep road users safe

12.00 | 25 June 2015 |

Dyfed-Powys’ police and crime commissioner is inviting organisations to put forward ideas to keep road users safe across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire and Powys – and is offering a share of £300,000 to develop and run the chosen schemes.

Christopher Salmon said: “My Roads to Safety scheme will see innovative and exciting new road safety projects improve the lives of our communities and their road users.”

Mr Salmon’s scheme is open to public sector, police force, private sector, voluntary or community organisations and he is encouraging organisations to work together.

A separate smaller budget of £35,000 is earmarked to look at specific research between academic institutions and partners, with a focus around emerging trends affecting road safety.

Mr Salmon says he aims to support projects that demonstrate “innovation in building the research evidence base and applying it through knowledge exchange across all levels of road safety”.

The closing date for applications is 8 September.
