The movement and place framework is increasingly applied by jurisdictions to guide transport planning, and underpins the NSW approach to long-term transport planning. embedding safety into movement and place considerations will help planners deliver safe road infrastructure. However, conflicts inevitably arise where there are strong demands for both movement and place functions. In these cases, compromises must be made to improve safety while balancing different road functions and supporting the needs of different road users. This paper presents a case study outlining how safety principles have been applied to balance movement and place functions along the Great Western Highway, NSW.
