This Standard safety intervention toolkit is intended to provide guidance for road practitioners of all types and levels of professional experience, including: road safety and transport engineers, asset managers, town planners, civil designers and community road safety officers. It is relevant to both state highway and local authority networks.
The toolkit has been developed progressively since 2018 and is a ‘living’ document. It is intended to be maintained and updated regularly, so that new standard safety interventions can be captured and disseminated to practitioners.
The toolkit is not intended to replace any Transport Agency’s and/or Austroad’s road safety publications as a source of in-depth technical information.
Although the primary objective of this toolkit is to focus on engineering-based treatments, it is expected that the user takes a holistic view on road safety, identifying issues such as enforcement, road user education and media campaigns.
The toolkit provides photographic examples of individual standard safety interventions and, for most treatments, there are technical references provided, some with links to internet sites containing relevant documents.
