3M has announced the launch of the 3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety Award 2011. This new Australian Road Safety Award was developed in conjunction with the Australasian College of Road Safety.
The award calls for any road safety practitioner from the public or private sectors (including road engineers, contractors, road safety officers, road safety equipment manufacturers, asset managers, town planners, etc.) to submit highly innovative, cost-effective road safety initiatives or programs which they have recently developed that stand out from normal practice and deliver significant improvements in road safety for the community.
“Road safety affects us all, and 3M are pleased to be able to actively contribute to this campaign and drive road safety initiatives,” said a spokesperson for 3M.
The team leader from the winning project will receive a trip to the USA to attend the 42nd ATSSA Annual Convention & Traffic Expo in Florida in February 2012. They will then travel to 3M Company Headquarters in St Paul, Minnesota to learn more about 3M’s innovative technologies and solutions.
The winning entry will be announced at the ACRS Road Safety Conference Dinner on 1 September 2011. All eligible members of the winning project will be presented with the award.
All entries will be judged by an independent committee of industry representatives, established by the ACRS specifically for this award.
