What is a Road Safety Audit?
A Road Safety Audit (RSA) is a formal assessment of road safety risks on an existing or proposed road project. RSAs are conducted across all stages of project development, including concept design, preliminary design, detailed design, post opening and existing conditions.
A Road Safety Audit can only be conducted by road safety professionals (Road Safety Auditors) who are accredited by VicRoads (Department of Transport), NSW Roads and Maritime Services and the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads.
Typically, Road Safety Auditors visit the site during ‘day’ and ‘night’ conditions to identify potential safety issues with the proposed design. The identified safety issues are then given a risk rating based on the severity and likelihood of incidents, with recommendations provided for potential improvements.
When is a Road Safety Audit Needed?
Typically, the Road Authority (i.e., VicRoads, RMS, TMR) will ask for Road Safety Audits to be undertaken at various stages during the design process. This ensures that safety maintains a priority throughout changes to blueprints and throughout development.
As discussed above, a Road Safety Audit can be conducted at multiple stages of the design. A road safety audit is needed to ensure that a potential development minimises safety risks and to identify any safety improvements required. Our road safety audits in Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne help developers mitigate these risks and plan for changes to design.
