Lockhart Shire nestles in the heart of the Riverina and is one of it's most productive agricultural and pastoral areas.
may be aware that Transport for NSW launched a campaign in December
highlighting road-side safety issues for occupations that work by the road.
Called ‘Slow Down and Give Us Space’ the video (http://roadsafety.transport.nsw.gov.au/campaigns/slowdownandgiveusspace.html ) features personnel
from NSW Police, Fire and Rescue NSW, NSW SES, NSW Ambulance, RMS and NRMA and
emphasises that the roadside is a dangerous workplace and if drivers encounter
crews working by the road please ‘Slow Down and Give them space’.
