High-risk intersections guide

Published: | Category: Manuals , Safety management systems | Audience: Road controlling authorities

The guide has been developed to assist road controlling authorities in targeting intersection safety improvements to the highest risk intersections, and providing a nationally consistent application of proven countermeasures. Road controlling authorities can use the guide to identify their high-risk intersections and then to prioritise them by examining the crash histories and site characteristics to identify risk factors for which there are effective countermeasures.

High-risk rural roads guide

Published: | Category: Manuals , Safety management systems | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

The High-risk rural road guide was developed to assist road controlling authorities in targeting road safety improvements on the highest risk sections of New Zealand’s rural roads (those with a posted speed limit of 80km/h or more) by using best value for money initiatives and providing a nationally consistent application of proven countermeasures. The guide introduces a new way to identify high-risk road sections and, using the Safe System approach, provides best practice guidance on targeting and addressing key road safety issues on high-risk rural roads.

Standard safety intervention toolkit

Published: | Category: Manuals , Safety management systems | Audiences: Road controlling authorities, Road traffic engineers & consultants, Roading contractors

This Standard safety intervention toolkit is intended to provide guidance for road practitioners of all types and levels of professional experience, including: road safety and transport engineers, asset managers, town planners, civil designers and community road safety officers. It is relevant to both state highway and local authority networks. The toolkit has been developed progressively since 2018 and is a ‘living’ document. It is intended to be maintained and updated regularly, so that new standard safety interventions can be captured and disseminated to practitioners. The toolkit is not intended to replace any Transport Agency’s and/or Austroad’s road safety publications as a source of in-depth technical information. Further information to support this section is available in other Transport Agency documents such as the Transport Agency’s High-risk rural roads guide and High risk intersections guide.
