Road Safety Infrastructure
Topics covered under this theme include the impact on safety of driver and roadway interactions, advanced transport communications technologies, traffic operations, multi-modal connections (e.g. level crossings, bike lanes), and improving road safety data collection, analysis, and evaluation methods.
This theme also includes transport system safety planning and management.
An improved understanding of the relationships between engineering investments and driver behavioural responses to such designs is required both in Australia and internationally.
The current research programs work closely with key industry partners to examine the usefulness of technological solutions to improve the human factors associated with road safety infrastructure.
