The Australian Work Zone Memorial pays tribute to Australian road workers who have been killed while carrying out their duties in an active worksite. TMAA's initiative is inspired by a similar 2002 project launched by the American Traffic Safety Services Foundation in the United States. Like its American counterpart, the purpose of the Australian Work Zone Memorial is to honour lives lost in work zones and remind policymakers and drivers of the human impact of work zone fatalities.
To add a Name to the Australian Work Zone Memorial, please fill out the Australian Work Zone Memorial Name Submission Form and email your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
TMAA invites submissions of names to be included on the memorial. Anyone may submit a name, but consent must be obtained from a family member before adding a name to the memorial.
Suzanne Caudell (11 April 1948 - 16 January 2013)
This is the story of Suzanne Caudell, a traffic controller who was killed by a truck doing 40km/h over the speed limit on the Bruce Highway in Queensland. Suzanne's story is told by her husband, Colin, who was also working on the site and witnessed this tragic event. We thank Colin for his courage in reliving that horrible day so others understand why it's so important to slow down through roadworks.
