Road Safety Auditing

Audits are required to be conducted on all projects that involve a permanent change to the road layout on a State managed road.

A Road Safety Audit is a formal, systematic, assessment of the potential road safety risks associated with a new road project or road improvement project, conducted by an independent qualified audit team. The assessment considers all road users and suggests measures to eliminate or mitigate those risks.

This is a vital, proactive road safety mechanism for assessing the road safety risk of permanent changes to the road network.

Road Safety Audits shall be conducted on all projects that involve a permanent change to the road layout on State managed roads, in accordance with the requirements of our Road Safety Audit Policy.
