The Project

The Community Wheels Project is funded through a partnership grant received by the Essex Casualty Reduction Board from the DfT in 2007. It is an integral part of the strategy implemented by the ECRB toward the reduction of killed and seriously injured (KSI) casualties, and has taken a primary role in engaging with local communities and groups with specific accident problems.

Community Wheels is a highly ambitious project, endeavouring to target many types of road users with measurable results. The partnership approach was encouraged by the grant provider (DfT), and ensures that the vehicle is equipped to deal with a variety of audiences in diverse locations, with the ability to respond to specific local problems.
