INTERSECTIONS AND ROAD SAFETY AUDIT - AN AUSTRALIAN AND NEW ZEALAND EXPERIENCE

This paper on intersections and road safety audits in Australia and New Zealand is from a set of conference proceedings on Intersection Safety: Achieving Solutions Through Partnerships. The author focuses on two issues: the types of intersection that are appropriate for maximizing safety outcomes and how those intersections should be designed. The author also reviews common guidelines for intersection safety performance, emphasizing the importance of considering safety before the intersection is created. One section discusses roundabout safety and operational issues. The author concludes with seven examples from real audits that highlight the issues related to auditing intersections. Readers are cautioned that look at the effects of the road project on adjacent sections of road and the approaches to the intersections.
