Road Safety

In June 2009 The Scottish Government published 'Go Safe on Scotland's Roads - It's Everyone's Responsibility'. This document sets out the Scottish Road Safety Framework to 2020 and a vision that there will be "A steady reduction in the numbers of those killed and those seriously injured, with the ultimate vision of a future where no-one is killed on Scotland's roads, and the injury rate is much reduced." The Scottish Road Safety Targets are set against a baseline of the average Scottish figures for 2004 - 2008. Clackmannanshire Council has made good progress in helping to achieve these, the most recent road safety figures are shown in the table below.

Road Maintenance

In 2010, Audit Scotland agreed a targeted approach to following-up a small number of performance audit reports each year to promote local impact. One of the reports selected for targeted follow-up in 2011/12 is Maintaining Scotland's roads: a follow-up report, which was published in February 2011.

The aim of the follow-up work was to assess the progress the Council has made in improving its management of road maintenance, focusing on road asset management planning, performance management and maximising value for money.

A performance audit was carried out in May / June 2012. The report below:- 'Maintaining Scotland's roads: Targeted follow-up audit' outlines our progress.
