Innovation and Safe System Road Infrastructure
Implementation of Safe System in Australia and New Zealand demands many changes in the way road infrastructure is designed and delivered. While there have been a number of innovative road safety treatments successfully trialled and evaluated, their introduction into mainstream road planning and design is very slow. This paper proposes that road infrastructure is a product that supports provision of road transport as a service. In this context, the paper draws on innovation management and agile product development techniques to propose a streamlined approach to development, trialling and adoption of new Safe System road infrastructure solutions.
