Safer journeys for schools

Published: | Category: Manuals | Audience: Road traffic engineers & consultants

This Safer journeys for schools guide has primarily been developed to provide technical guidance for road controlling authorities and consultant engineers so that they can understand, prioritise and address road safety issues at both urban and rural schools. An additional companion document called Safer Journeys for schools: guidelines for school communities has been developed to provide community focussed guidance for schools and their communities. School intervention priority is identified through a three stage process, incorporating a national priority threshold calculation process, regional‐based desktop analysis and a detailed on‐site assessment to ensure all key issues and concerns by the school community are considered. Following this process, specific recommendations can be developed by using a toolbox of measures that have been specifically designed for school environments as well as other measures that are designed for rural roads and urban streets in general.
