Safer Transport & Mobility Safe Systems and Transport Planning

ARSC conference 2018

With increasing urban congestion there is renewed focus on public transport. Public transport networks may directly integrate with the road environment, such as bus or light rail networks, or may be segregated but provide high-demand interchanges, such as Metro rail. Through good design and practice we can ensure these networks and interchanges provide safe access and thoroughfare for all road users – making sure we proactively create safe places for people that align with our Towards Zero vision. This paper outlines how a collaborative safe system approach has been achieved to ensure safe integration during construction and operation of transport projects.
