Road safety on the local roads in the Shire of Campaspe

State road authorities have developed criteria to prioritise safety treatments at intersections and on lengths of roads. Usually the criteria only applies to highly trafficked roads, and where casualty crash information is available. What should a rural council consider when addressing the community's concerns about safety on lower trafficked roads which don't have a documented history of casualty crashes? The criteria applicable to arterial roads do not translate well to lower trafficked local roads and hence an alternative approach is required. As a result the Shire of Campaspe commenced a project in late 2005 to develop some criteria to identify and rank safety issues on these lower trafficked roads.
