And we care very much about what happens on Tasmania’s roads.
That’s why we’re pleased to announce that Downer’s General Manager – Tasmania, Marcus Stephens, has been appointed to the RACT’s North West Advisory Committee.
The Committee provides expert regional advice to the RACT Board regarding the RACT’s statewide advocacy program, particularly on issues that are important at regional level.
The RACT has two priority advocacy areas: road safety and transport.
“Tasmania has the worst road safety record of any state. Pushing for changes that will lead to safer roads, safer vehicles and safer drivers will deliver better outcomes,” Marcus said.
“In our business roads are not just a way to get from point A to point B. For many of us they are workplaces and it’s in our interests to support changes that will make our roads safer.
“I’m looking forward to helping drive positive change through the advisory committee not just for the north west community, but for all Tasmanian road users.”
