  • Organiser: Austroads

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.

This webinar will present best practice recommendations for the development of Road Safety Infrastructure Programs (RSIPs) that align with the safe system approach. 

You will gain an understanding of:

  • a best practice structure for the development and implementation of RSIPs
  • guidance to demonstrate how program development and implementation can be improved to make greater fatal and serious casualty savings from road safety infrastructure investment
  • case studies of current best and good practice recommendations towards the implementation of findings including benchmarking industry progress.

Join in a live Q&A with the presenters to ask questions about best practice in RSIPs.
