Understanding and Improving Safe System Intersection Performance
Intersection crashes account for approximately 30% of severe injuries in Australia and New Zealand. This study sought to improve understanding of the key factors in intersection severe injury crashes, and to develop initiatives to improve the design…
Improving the Performance of Safe System Infrastructure: Final Report
This report summarises the findings of a three-year study which reviewed the safety performance of selected road infrastructure elements and provided solutions that were more closely aligned with the Safe System ideal.
Safe Intersection Approach Treatments and Safer Speeds Through Intersections: Phase 2
This project examines speeds through intersections. Phase 2 provides an assessment of selected treatments at intersections. A key objective of this research is to provide information to Austroads members on effective techniques to reduce speed and…
Effectiveness and Selection of Treatments for Cyclists at Signalised Intersections
Cycling forms an integral element of a transport system, and provides a genuine alternative travel choice to cars while contributing to healthier lifestyles. Many governments, including those in Australia and New Zealand, have set targets to…
Safe Intersection Approach Treatments and Safer Speeds through Intersections: Final Report, Phase 1.
The aim of this project is to investigate intersection crashes with a view to determining suitable intersection approach treatments, and opportunities for better managing speeds through intersections, so as to reduce the severity of intersection…
Road Safety Engineering Risk Assessment Part 9: Rural Intersection Crashes
Intersection crashes are one of the more common type of crash that may occur in rural environments. It is therefore important, within a Safe System, that factors that may contribute to intersection crashes and methods that may be used to prevent…
Guidelines for Setting-up and Operation of Signalised Intersections with Red Light Cameras
The literature has produced mixed results on the effectiveness of red light cameras on crashes. Various Australian studies have shown crash reductions varying from 7% to 46%. Different studies also report different results in the crash types that…
Investigation of Cyclist Safety at Intersections
This report investigates casualty cyclist accidents over two years in metropolitan areas of Melbourne and Sydney, and the nature of crashes and intersection features at 18 sites in Melbourne with higher cyclist crash numbers, in an attempt to:…
