Network Safety Plans from ARRB

by Australian Road Research Board on October 29, 2020

Building on ARRB’s world leading expertise in developing Australian risk assessment programs, we have developed a methodology to assist practitioners in preparing Network Safety Plans and establishing a consistent risk profile across their network.

Network Safety Plans are the next generation in road safety planning.

Using 13 road stereotypes, covering rural and urban environments and ranging from freeways/motorways to local access roads, the aim is to select a road cross-section that improves the road corridors to a safer and more consistent geometric standard.

The road stereotype tables will provide guidance on the expected safety performance, or crash risk, for a series of cross-sections that are considered appropriate for each road stereotype using pre-calculated risk values from the International Road Assessment Program (iRAP) star ratings and the Australian National Risk Assessment Model (ANRAM) fatal and serious injury (FSI) crash prediction models.

ARRB can train your team to prepare Network Safety Plans or you can provide us with data and we will work with you to tailor the plans to your needs.

Contact ARRB at transportsafety@arrb.com.au for further information on Network Safety Plans.
