Increasingly road authorities, architects, designers, planners and contractors worldwide are avoiding unnecessary accidents, injuries and costly litigation by conducting road safety audits prior to commencement, during construction, and right through to when the facility is opened to the public.
A road safety audit will review the following stages during the day and night (where appropriate):
Concept, Functional Design, Detailed Design, Construction/Traffic Management, Pre-Opening, Post-Opening and Existing Conditions.
Audits are conducted in accordance with the relevant standards and acts for construction audits, and Austroads Guidelines / relevant road authority traffic engineering manuals and design guidelines for design audits. However, audits are not compliance checks.
