Safety management systems encourage road controlling authorities to adopt safety management systems. These systems ensure that decisions about construction, maintenance and management of road networks consider safety and help achieve targets and goals identified in national and local road safety strategies.
The NZ Transport Agency is committed to provide ongoing assistance and advice for road controlling authorities in the development and implementation of their safety management systems.
Guidelines for developing and implementing a safety management system for road controlling authorities may either be downloaded from this website or a copy obtained from Transport Agency offices.
