A8 - Merseyside Road Safety Partnership

The Merseyside Road Safety Partnership is committed to improving road safety across the Liverpool City Region and comprises of the following organisations:-

  • Knowsley Council 

  • Liverpool City Council

  • Sefton Council 

  • St Helens Council 

  • Wirral Council 

  • Merseytravel 

  • Merseyside Police & PCC's Office

  • Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service

  • North West Ambulance Service, and

  • Highways England

(NB Halton Council is aligned with the Cheshire Road Safety Partnership)

The Partnership is chaired by Merseyside Polices Head of CJ Reform Susan McTaggart MBE MSc. The vice chair is held by Sean Traynor Head of Highways and Transportation at Knowsley Council. 

Our vision is to reduce the numbers of those killed and seriously injured to fewer than 400 by 2020, with the ultimate vision of a future where no-one is killed on Merseyside’s roads and the injury rate is reduced.

We have set ourselves a challenging long term vision which requires a fresh ‘evidence led’ partnership approach to road safety and our strategy  the Liverpool City Region Road Safety Strategy 2017 – 2020  provides the detail of how we are going to achieve our vision. Achieving safer roads requires the use of various methods and measures which reduce the risk to persons using the road network. Our strategy focuses upon the use of evidence for the prevention of serious injury and death at point of conflict; the essence of ‘casualty reduction’.
