The Eastern Bay Road Safety Committee is made up of staff and councillors from Whakatāne District Council, Ōpōtiki District Council, Kawerau District Council and Bay of Plenty Regional Council. This group gets about 75 percent of its funding from the New Zealand Transport Agency, and the other 25 percent is shared from councils. There are many other contributing parties that work with the committee, including police and community groups. For further information and recent documents, see the Eastern Bay Road Safety Programme
The Committee provides funding to community groups working towards road safety objectives set out in the integrated Road Safety Action Plan and also coordinates road safety campaigns.
The objective of this group is to increase your safety on the roads by using education, engineering and enforcement.
