A comprehensive annual report on progress is prepared for Transport Ministers at the end of each calendar year.

The primary measure of success for the 10-year strategy will be the actual reduction in the numbers of deaths and serious injuries from road crashes. Intermediate progress is assessed annually using the high level outcome indicators established when the current strategy commenced, as well as the safety performance indicators (SPIs) that have been developed for detailed progress monitoring. Development of additional SPIs and associated data collection arrangements is ongoing.

The Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) maintains the National Crash Database for the purpose of monitoring progress under the strategy.  The BITRE provides a range of other road safety statistical information, including the Australian Road Deaths Database, and the Road Deaths Australia Monthly Bulletins and Road Trauma Australia—Annual Summaries, which draw on this data.

1. Please note there was no report in 2014. The 2014 National Road Safety Strategy Review provided an assessment of the progress made in the first 3 years (2011–2013).
