Improving roadside safety: stage 4: interim report

Roadside hazards pose a major risk to the occupants of vehicles which run off the road. This report presents the final stage of an Austroads project which involved investigations into the effectiveness of safety barrier placement, providing more forgiving roadside structures (such as frangible poles) or protecting errant vehicles against impacts with them (clear zones). It also investigated retrofitting of safety barriers to improve motorcyclist safety. The report presents road safety engineering practitioners in Australia and New Zealand with updated advice on hazard management, treatment selection and barrier placement to assist in making progressive steps towards safe roadsides.
