Austroads Project: Road Cross Section Design, Road Stereotypes, Network-Wide Safety Plans and Safe System

Bobbermen, D.

Safer Roads

ARSC conference 2017

* Consistency in the practical application of safe system treatments which can be realistically implemented

* Provision of a self-explaining road
