This webinar will give you 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.

In the absence of an AS/NZ design standard that is specifically intended for use in road tunnels, jurisdictions have developed bespoke requirements for road tunnel emergency signage. These requirements vary between jurisdictions and between tunnels within the same jurisdiction, reflecting requirements that have evolved from project to project in the absence of a standard that is intended for use in road tunnels and that recognises fire safety hazards that are specific to road tunnels.

In the webinar you’ll learn about

  • 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

Join in a live Q&A with our presenter to ask questions about the emergency evacuation signage recommendations.
