Inclusion of recent road safety research into the Guide to Road Design: summary of research reports

Recent Austroads research reports have been reviewed and any recommendations have been identified and assessed for their impact on the Guide to Road Design. The recommendations related to updating design practices based on the outcomes of the research and possible amendments have been developed. Thirty reports were reviewed, and the Road Design Task Force determined the application of the recommendations and inclusion within the Guide to Road Design. The review also identified possible amendments to the Traffic Management guides, and this has been highlighted in the report. To assist in incorporating research into the Guides, a procedure has been developed for Task Forces, that outlines the process from inception of the research project to amending the Guide. This process enables a consistent method to be followed and outcomes of research to be brought into practice in a timely manner.
