The RACT has welcomed the appointment of Garry Bailey as chairman of the Road Safety Advisory Council.

RACT chief executive officer Harvey Lennon said he looked forward to working with Mr Bailey in his new capacity across a range of road safety issues that were important to RACT members and the broader Tasmanian community.

“Garry is a member of the RACT’s Southern Regional Advisory Committee,” he said.

“The committee reports to the RACT Board and liaises with the Road and Traffic committee on relevant road and traffic matters.

“The committee also liaises and makes recommendations to relevant local authorities to improve road design, road safety and traffic management.”
