Traffic Safety Fund Grants Awarded To 27 Safety Projects Across The Province

Released on May 13, 2019

Communities throughout Saskatchewan will benefit from 27 traffic safety projects approved for funding from the proceeds of photo speed enforcement (PSE).

The PSE Committee has awarded the first round of Provincial Traffic Safety Fund grants, providing a total of $498,732 for 27 projects, including intersection and crosswalk improvements, speed display signs, pedestrian crossing signals, and speed-reduction initiatives.

“These initiatives will contribute to safer roads across Saskatchewan,” Minister Responsible for SGI Joe Hargrave said.  “The goal of photo speed enforcement has always been to improve traffic safety.  PSE reduces speed-related collisions where it takes place and through these grants, now supports improvements to traffic safety in many other locations throughout the province as well.”

Grants range from $2,500 to $100,000.  Recipients include rural and urban municipalities, Indigenous communities and a police agency.  A full list of approved projects and grant amounts is attached.

Applications were evaluated by the PSE committee, which includes representatives from the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities, Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, the Saskatchewan Association of Chiefs of Police, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure and SGI.

Applications were assessed against criteria focused on priority areas including intersection safety, aggressive driving, speeding and vulnerable road users.

Provincial Traffic Safety Fund grants will be awarded twice annually.  Applications for the next round will open July 1, 2019.
