ARRB to undertake research for WA road signage inquiry

by Australian Road Research Board on December 1, 2020

An inquiry will examine whether temporary traffic signage installed in regional areas in Western Australia is properly secured and displayed at roadworks sites, following community concern.

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) will undertake the research for the inquiry.

WA Transport Minister Rita Saffioti says a reference group made up of key stakeholders and industry representatives will be established to guide the independent review into regional road signage.

"We are establishing a reference group of key industry representatives to be a part of this inquiry, with research to be undertaken by the Australian Road Research Board, a trusted national transport research organisation, “ Ms Saffioti says.

"The independent, expert advice offered by ARRB will provide valuable insight into ensuring temporary signage remains secure and does its job of warning and advising road users to ensure their safety.

"We anticipate the review to take about six months - I look forward to receiving the results of the review."

The reference group will be chaired by Dennis O'Reilly, Executive Director for the WA Department of Transport, with members to be invited from:

  • The Traffic Management Association Australia WA
  • WorkSafe
  • Engineers Australia
  • Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia WA
  • RAC
  • Western Roads Federation
  • TWU
  • Main Roads WA

Public consultation will be undertaken during the review, which will also involve a comparative analysis of regional traffic management signage practices in other States and jurisdictions.

The review and its final report are anticipated to be completed within six months.
