Safe Road Infrastructure

Research in Safe Road Infrastructure relates to the development of forgiving road environments through improved infrastructure planning, design, maintenance and management.

Our Safe Road Infrastructure research is primarily conducted through the internationally recognised Centre for Automotive Safety Research (CASR). Our researchers’ particular areas of focus include the:

  • efficacy of infrastructure treatments in reducing road related trauma
  • discovery of infrastructure treatments that will contribute to eliminating road deaths and injury
  • link between specific road design features and mechanisms of injury.

Our Safe Road Infrastructure work benefits, and is of immediate relevance to, all road users, whether they be drivers, motorcyclists, cyclists or pedestrians. It also influences government policy and practice, and can assist:

  • road funders
  • private road operators
  • consulting firms
  • companies with private vehicle networks and/or large fleets
  • organisations involved in regional and urban development and planning.
