2017 - Australian Road Safety Awards
In March 2017 at the Australian Road Safety Awards held in Melbourne the Shire of Cranbrook was awarded with the Road Safety Encouragement Award.
We lodged an application in January for an award under the category of ‘Local Government Initiatives’. The application focused on the safety benefits gained from the closure of the Frankland-Cranbrook East Road (commonly referred to as the Northern Two Mile) and the impact the reduction in heavy vehicles has had on the safety of residents living in a built up area.

Thanks go to all the staff for their effort and hard work in achieving this recognition. Without you, this award would not have been possible.
