This webinar, presented on 9 November 2018, provides an overview of an Austroads study to develop suggested good practice for a consistent, efficient and safe approach to emergency egress signage within Australasian road tunnels.

It covers

  • how signage supports the requirements of the relevant phases of the evacuation process
  • comparisons of signage within existing or under construction tunnels in Australasia and their alignment with local standards and international practice
  • the results and conclusions of the assessment, including the recommended emergency evacuation signage for use within Australasian road tunnels
  • other elements identified that are important in the context of supporting the evacuation process.
