Road Safety Engineering Risk Assessment Part 3: Review of Best Practice in Road Crash Database and Analysis System Design
Crash databases are an essential tool in analysing crash risk. Databases allow identification of high crash locations, and provide information on crash causation, allowing these crashes to be effectively targeted. The information contained in crash…
Road Safety on Local Government Roads: Final Report

Local government roads form a significant part of the public road network, but little is known about crashes on these types of roads. This study involved a review of literature, crash data analysis, site investigations, in-depth crash analysis and…

Road Safety Engineering Risk Assessment Part 2: Crash Risk Migration

This report provides an overview of the effect known as crash risk migration (CRM). It is intended to build an understanding of the potential for CRM to occur as a result of road safety treatments. It is also intended to inform current approaches to…

Road Safety Engineering Risk Assessment Part 1: Relationships between Crash Risk and the Standards of Geometric Design Elements

This project forms part of an ongoing Austroads strategic research program to improve the understanding of the relationship between crash risk and road elements. This report provides a summary of the relationship between crash risk, and geometric…

Design, Feasibility and Application of an Instrumented Vehicle

This project aimed to consider options for the selection of an appropriate instrumentation package to fulfil future research needs and the development of a research program for future years. This involved email and phone consultation with a number…

Development of a Best Practice Intervention Model for Recidivist Speeding Offenders

Speed-related crashes are a continuing concern in Australasia. On behalf of Austroads, ARRB Group undertook to develop a framework for an intervention to promote safe driving among recidivist speeders.

Five key tasks were carried out: a literature…

Component Costs in Transport Projects to Ensure the Appropriate Valuing of Safety Effects
Austroads commissioned ARRB to consider the current costing procedures used in determining the relative cost share of safety in project evaluation. Australia currently uses a human capital approach to the valuation of crash costs, while many other…
