LIGHTING COLUMNS AND PUBLIC LIGHTING: COSTS RELATED TO TRAFFIC SAFETY; A DECISION MODEL

LICHTMASTEN EN OPENBARE VERLICHTING: KOSTEN IN RELATIE TOT VERKEERSVEILIGHEID; EEN BESLISSINGSMODEL

Road safety measures in the Netherlands are increasingly based on a quantitative analysis of their cost-effectiveness. It is imperative for a rational decision process that all relevant effects of measures be quantified as objectively as possible. The relative importance of these effects is, however, determined by a subjective value-judgement. The effects and costs of roadside objects have been built into a decision model. This decision model can be used when deciding whether or not to place roadside objects, such as street lighting, along a particular stretch of road. It can also be used for decisions to modify the construction of roadside objects or to screen them, for example with a guard rail. An extensive example is given of the application of the decision model to the installation of public lighting. /TRRL/
