Model National Guidelines for Setting Speed Limits at High-risk Locations
This report incorporates recent research, best practice examples, and jurisdictional inputs to propose a set of model national speed limit guidelines for setting speed limits at high-risk locations. The model guidelines represent a harm reduction…
Methods for Reducing Speeds on Rural Roads: Compendium of Good Practice
This compendium presents information on speed as a contributor to rural road crashes. It provides information on treatments that can be used to address speed, either at key locations (curves, intersections or the approach to towns) or for routes in…
Driver Attitudes to Speed Enforcement
The research undertaken for this project comprised: an audit of existing speed enforcement strategies in all Australian and New Zealand jurisdictions; a review of research into attitudes towards speeding and speed enforcement in Australian and New…
Expanded Operating Speed Model

Austroads Project TS1456 (Expanded Operating Speed Model) was established to update and expand the road design operating speed models used in Australia. In particular, the project reviewed the validity of the existing operating speed model for rural…

Point-to-Point Speed Enforcement
This report reviews the use of point-to-point speed enforcement internationally in order to provide principles for better practice for its use in Australia and New Zealand. Point-to-point enforcement is a relatively new technological approach to…
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…
Performance-based Specification for Electronic Work Diary and Heavy Vehicle Speed Monitoring
This report presents the performance-based specification for an electronic work diary and heavy vehicle speed monitoring as directed by the Australian Transport Council (ATC) at its November 2008 meeting. The ATC directed the immediate development…
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…
Impact of Lower Speed Limits for Road Safety on Network Operations

This project achieved the objective of consolidating the available research on the impacts of lower speed limits on network operations. It extended this knowledge to bridge an identified knowledge gap regarding urban arterial roads by modelling the…

Infrastructure/Speed Limit Relationship in Relation to Road Safety Outcomes

The objective of this project was to provide advice to jurisdictions on appropriate speed limit setting policy in light of harm minimisation (the Safe System approach). This advice was based on the improved understanding of the relationships between…
