Submission Date: 2018 Conference: ARSC
To support the rollout of Victoria’s Towards Zero Strategy which looks to address intersection and midblock crashes, VicRoads – Network Design Services – Safe System Design team developed a technical guideline for design practitioners on the application of these treatments. We took learnings from sites both within Australia and abroad and considered the limited research available to formulate criteria and design guidance and considerations for practitioners around various aspects of the treatments. The plan is to take the audience via presentation through the development experience and evolution of the guideline document as well as some of the learnings and amendments currently underway to improve it. Practitioner/Policy Focused.
