Action for reconciliation Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is focused on creating meaningful and long-term connections with Indigenous communities to help inform our actions and ensure we contribute to Australia’s reconciliation journey. After consulting with Indigenous communities, we completed an Engagement Strategy and Guidelines, which contain a set of principles for future engagement. These are helping us to identify key themes and opportunities for future reconciliation as we prepare to develop our next RAP. Read more about how we support reconciliation with our people (page 47 ) and our suppliers (page 60 ). In FY22, we launched a driving school in Queensland to give Indigenous young people access to a safe vehicle and trained instructor to help them complete their required 100 hours of supervised driving. We partnered with Former Origin Greats (FOGS) Achieving Results Through Indigenous Education (ARTIE) Academy to launch the Transurban ARTIE #1 Driving School. The driving school is a Queensland
Transurban ARTIE #1 Driving School is a Queensland first
first and each year will provide more than 900 free driving hours to around 80 students in South East Queensland. More than 500 Indigenous students are expected to benefit from the driving school over five years. We partner with Indigenous support service KARI in NSW on a similar program. The WestConnex Indigenous Driver Program provides access to a car and free professional driving lessons for disadvantaged Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander young people in Western Sydney. Since the program commenced in 2018, more than 400 young people have gained their learner or provisional licence, and 94 young people have gained employment as a result of having a licence.

—Case study— Improving car seat fittings
NeuRA’s Transurban Road Safety Centre research shows more than 50% of child car seats are incorrectly fitted, putting children at risk of serious injuries in a crash. A correctly fitted child car seat can reduce the risk of injury in an accident by up to 70%. This is why we are continuing to build on our partnership with Australian not-for-profit organisation Kidsafe. In May 2022, to coincide with National Road Safety Week in Australia, we joined Kidsafe in a car seat blitz and supported more than 600 free car seat checks and fittings at 12 locations such as shopping and community centres across Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney. Approximately 90% of checked car seats had at least one fault in the way they were fitted.
In FY22, we also provided more than 1,600 car seat fittings for Brisbane and Logan families in need through our Kidsafe Queensland partnership. Established in FY21, this partnership has already provided more than 5,000 car seat fittings in total. We also ran a webinar with industry experts from Kidsafe, NeuRA and our road safety team sharing advice on keeping children safe in vehicles. Our Driving Willpower (US) campaign also shared advice on correct child car seat fitting.
