This report provides best practice recommendations for the development of Road Safety Infrastructure Programs (RSIPs) that align with the safe system approach.
For many years, investment in road safety infrastructure in Australia and New Zealand has taken a bottom-up approach of targeting safety improvements at locations with an established safety problem. While this approach served Australia and New Zealand well in the past, it does not fully embrace the safe system philosophy on which the Australian and New Zealand road safety strategies are based.
The report’s recommendations provide practical information on ways to improve program design, process and implementation. When implemented by road controlling authorities, this best practice approach will effectively contribute towards an enduring and safer transport system with fewer fatalities and serious injuries.
