TitleRoad safety on local government roads: final report
AuthorsTurner B, Pyta V, Woolley JE, Zhang S
Year2010
TypeReport
AbstractThis document seeks to provide information on the safety of local government managed roads. A large proportion of the Australasian road network is managed by local government (82% in Australia, and 88% in New Zealand). However, little is known about the scale of the road safety problem on local roads, the types of crashes that occur, and causes of these crashes. It is difficult to develop strategies to reduce crash risk on local roads without first understanding the nature of the crashes that occur on these roads. This document provides the results of research on this topic, and is based on a review of literature, an analysis of crash data, site investigations, and a stakeholder workshop with representatives who are involved with local government road safety.
