Road Safety Management at Main Roads Western Australia
Keywords: Safe Systems & Transport Planning
Main Roads Western Australia is committed “To provide world class outcomes for the customer through a safe, reliable and sustainable road-based transport system”. A cornerstone of this commitment is the aim to provide improved safety outcomes for all users of the (road) transport network as defined within the State Government’s Towards Zero Road Safety Strategy 2008-2020 (Office of Road Safety, 2009). To achieve this, Main Roads has implemented a Road Safety Management (ROSMA) system based on Safe System principles. This paper describes ROSMA, one of the first of its kind, and its impact on road safety in Western Australia.
