ROAD CRASHES AT BRIDGES AND CULVERTS: A PRO-ACTIVE TRAFFIC SAFETY STUDY

All recorded crashes at bridges and culverts in Victoria, Australia were analysed in terms of characteristics of the bridge, its approaches, the vehicles, the drivers and the road user movements. The analysis revealed a small probability of any given bridge being a crash site, thus implying a need for mass application, low cost safety treatments. These treatments include delineation, safety barriers, road alignment etc. Priorities for treatment based on bridge width and length, and traffic flow, are developed (A). This paper was presented to the 5th World Conference on Transport Research, 1989, Yokohama, Japan.
