Island Road Safety Review released

17 December 2021

The Minister for Infrastructure has, today, published an Island Road Safety Review, reporting on the current statistics and trends in Jersey and making a series of recommendations for improving road safety in the Island.

The report follows a proposition from Constable Karen Shenton-Stone, approved by the States Assembly in March 2021, which asked for a such a review to be undertaken and then presented before the end of the year.

The recommendations include introducing a target of a 50 percent reduction in fatal and serious injuries over the period from 2023 to the end of 2032.

The Island Road Safety Review sets the scene for a full, detailed Road Safety Strategy which will be brought forward in 2022.

Infrastructure Minister, Deputy Kevin Lewis, said: "This structural review represents a significant milestone in our work to make Jersey's roads safer for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. We are now looking to set these ambitious targets to ensure we continue to move in the right direction.

"The appointments of a dedicated Road Safety Coordinator and Road Safety Officer will be important for moving this work forward and ultimately helping us cut fatalities and serious casualties on our roads."

Emergency services, the Chair of the Jersey Road Safety Panel, Chefs de Police and DVS officers were among those consulted during the review.

Constable Karen Shenton-Stone added: "I am pleased to see this report published today and believe it lays the foundations for safer roads for all users in future.

"I thank the Minister and his department for conducting this in-depth review, and now look forward to seeing the full Strategy published next year."
