Pre-Opening audits are a final check to ensure that the road has been built as designed and to identify any safety issues. The new road is assessed in detail, along with its connections to existing roads during the day and night.
At this stage many of the issues raised can be rectified with only minor modifications. However, this is often dependant on the audit process to this point.
Why undertake a pre-opening audit?
- To check for issues that may have been missed through the design process
- To check for issues resulting from poor or incorrect construction
- To check for issues resulting from genuine mistakes
- It is the last chance to rectify any problems before exposing them to the travelling public
