Road Safety

Vision Zero Logo

Almost 10,000 people have been killed or suffered life changing injuries on Greater Manchester's roads in the last 10 years. Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has now endorsed a draft Vision Zero Strategy for the city region. It aims to eliminate road death and life changing injuries by 2040, with a target to achieve a 50 per cent reduction by 2030. The intention is to increase safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.

For further information on Vision Zero and how to take part in an online survey visit the GMCA website (external link).
