Partnership Information

Safer Roads Humber has evolved as a direct result of changes to funding streams in relation to casualty reduction. The new partnership has brought together the former Humberside Safety Camera Partnership, which was tasked to reduce speed and casualties at collision hotspots and the Roadaware Partnership, which was responsible for delivering the speed seminar diversion scheme.

 

The creation of the new Safer Roads Humber partnership has enabled a range of organisations to work closely together to tackle road safety issues across the region.

 

From April 2007 there ceased to be a link between fine monies being used for safety camera operations. Instead the Government introduced a scheme where the local councils in the areas received extra monies for road safety and part of it has been used to fund Safer Roads Humber. Any surplus monies from road traffic diversions scheme like the speed seminars are also used for road safety activities.

 

Safer Roads Humber is made up of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Highways England, Hull City Council, Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Humberside Police, North East Lincolnshire Council, North Lincolnshire Council. The partnership also works closely with the Ministry of Defence School of Transport at Leconfield.
