Safety Audit Procedures For Existing Roads

This report presents the findings of a Safety Audit on a selection of roads (Black Stump District) that Transfund New Zealand Safety Audit Team has undertaken. The purpose of the audit is to identify issues and suggest recommendations that will contribute to increasing road safety in the district. The audit of the network was undertaken between (Monday, 1 September 1997 and Wednesday, 3 September 1997). It followed the procedure described in the Transfund New Zealand ‘Safety Audits on Existing Roads’ January 1998. It was agreed that the team should audit selected lengths of various roads as typical examples of road hierarchy, condition and environment in the district. Approximately (120 km, 10.0% of the 1,200 km) of sealed roads in the district were surveyed. Safety problems highlighted by the audit team should enable a remedial treatment programme to be prepared. It will also enable further safety studies and strategies to be implemented over wider areas of the roading network than those inspected during the Audit. The Safety Audit identified: urgent crash risks; high crash risks; medium crash risks; and low crash risks.
