Identification and evaluation of engineering solutions to accident reduction in North Queensland

This study is directed towards the design of cost-effective engineering solutions for reducing accidents which have been identified to have been mainly caused by adverse road conditions. Using the Queensland Department of Transport database PHYLAK, accident frequency, severity and circumstances (RUM numbers) have been analysed for all declared rural roads within the three northern Queensland districts of Townsville, Cairns and Mackay. Priority for remedial measures has been based on the road contributing accidents/km of link. A benefit/cost ratio has been calculated for each remedial measure for the selected links for each district. These measures have been ranked in descending benefit/cost ratio for funding priority.
