AANT chats Risky Roads with 104.9

AANT recently launched the Risky Roads survey. CEO Anthony Hill chats to Greg  Vincent on Territory FM about the goals of the overall campaign and how you can get involved. 

The survey aims to give people the opportunity to report dangerous roads, providing AANT with valuable data to lobby the government for road improvements. “AANT is taking the initiative to put this out there for all Territorians” says Anthony. 

“If you’re driving past a road, intersection, piece of road, or a whole road that you think is dangerous, report it” says Anthony. 

The survey tool is easy to use, and the survey itself is not just Darwin and Alice Springs focussed. You can report roads right across the NT, including rural and remote roads, dirt or bitumen. 

When asked what type of data is being revealed at this stage, Anthony tells us that a high percentage of respondents have identified various intersections around Darwin as dangerous. In particular, the turn off on Bagon Road into McDonald's. 

“We’ll actually overlay this data with all the accidents that have happened right across the Territory to see if there is a correlation between accidents and what has been reported” says Anthony.

Once this is done, AANT will lobby the government for funding to fix the top risky roads in each region of the Territory. Anthony says the more data they get, the stronger case they’ll have. 

AANT is encouraging as many people as possible to get involved with this important campaign. You have until the 29th of October to complete the survey and can nominate up to 5 roads or intersections.

AANT CEO Anthony Hill spoke to 104.1 Territory FM host Greg Vincent this morning about all the feedback being received on the Risky Roads survey.
