EXTENDED ABSTRACT: An innovative trial was introduced at a signalised intersection in Victoria with the intention of aligning approach speeds to Safe System speeds. Trial results from the combined treatment of signals, reduced speed limits and a Safety Platform indicate lower speeds at the trial site when compared to control intersections. Due to the combination of treatment, the direct effect of the Safety Platform on the lowered speed is not as clear, and will need to be investigated at the next stage of trial.
