Jack Chambers, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, said: “In my role, I have the privilege of regularly engaging with road safety advocates and experts. I am struck by their passion for and dedication to this important cause, and I am consistently impressed by the proposals that they bring forward for how we can make our roads safer.

He added: “As we develop our action plan for the 2025 to 2027 period in the months ahead, it is crucial that we gather the insights and perspectives of a diverse range of road users to ensure we move towards our 2030 targets with a comprehensive road safety plan in place.”

The Department said the forum would “serve as an independent consultative body aimed at providing insights and assistance for the formulation” and “may assist with decision-making on prioritising road safety actions” of the Phase 2 Action Plan.
