Innovation and Safe System Road Infrastructure

Jurewicz, C


ARSC conference 2017

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.
