ARSC conference 2016

This paper describes a number of highly effective road infrastructure treatments. Each has been applied internationally, and been proven to be beneficial in improving safety outcomes. However, application within Australia for each has been limited to date. Based on several projects conducted on behalf of Austroads and for individual road agencies, this paper brings together the evidence base on these treatments, and makes the case for greater use of these. These include treatments that can be applied on high speed rural roads, as well as others that are beneficial on urban arterial networks.
