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.
The templates below provide the recommended structure for a road safety audit brief, road safety audit report and road safety inspection report which must be used when conducting the audit process on the State road network. The templates provided can be branded by organisations external to Main Roads; however the structure of the templates and findings must be retained.
