    Does this mean that interested observers are allowed to come along do you think?

  5. Making Roads Motorcycle Friendly
    This project has involved the delivery of seminars aimed at improving awareness of the need to adopt motorcycle friendly engineering products, practices and maintenance procedures.

    The seminars were targeted at those working in local government and VicRoads, as well as road design and construction contractors, and utility providers (public transport, electricity, gas, water and telecommunications).

    About 200 people across Victoria attended one of the 12 seminars run to date.

    An evaluation is currently being conducted to determine how successful the program was and enable the identification of next steps.
