Our State Highway Safety Plan provides guidelines on using engineering to make our roads safe. The plan reflects our commitment to reducing the number of crashes on the state highways that result in death or injury.
The plan has two key aims:
To provide a consistent, safe and forgiving road environment with no surprises for road users.
To provide a safe working environment for maintenance and construction activities.
It covers initiatives such as:
reducing vehicle/train crashes
considering the needs of vulnerable road users
keeping vehicles on the roadway
minimising the consequences of leaving the roadway
reducing head-on and across-median crashes.
