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.
