We’re looking at putting in rural intersection activated warning signs (RIAWS) at intersections which have a high crash rate and where we know having lower speeds approaching the intersection will help improve people’s safety.
RIAWS are electronic signs that detect when someone is turning into or out of a side road and temporarily reduce the speed limit on the state highway (usually from 100 km/h to 60km/hr or 70km/h). RIAWS are already being successfully used at 13 locations on state highways around the country to improve intersection safety with minimal delays for road users.
We’re looking at putting RIAWS in to improve people’s safety at the following sites. Before we make decisions, we want to know what you think.
