Event description

Description

Speed limit setting is at the core of speed management. Speed limits need to be set at a safe and appropriate level, considering the function, design and safety of the road. Infrastructure Risk Rating, initially developed in New Zealand, is a simple road assessment methodology designed to assess road safety risk at a network level, primarily as an input to the speed limit setting process.

Austroads recently commissioned research into the applicability of Infrastructure Risk Rating for use by State and Local Governments in Australia. This included developing an Infrastructure Risk Rating web tool to help road controlling agencies assess infrastructure-related road risk as an input to the speed limit setting process.

The workshop will be led by Haris Zia (Abley Limited) and will:

  • include an introduction to Infrastructure Risk Rating
  • provide direction as to how Infrastructure Risk Rating can be applied for Australian roads
  • present the Infrastructure Risk Rating webtool, including worked examples of how to apply this tool for speed management
  • facilitate a discussion on speed management and the potential of the Infrastructure Risk Rating approach for Australian roads

This workshop will be of interest to individuals responsible for speed management policy and engineering in state and local government.

Participants should bring a laptop or tablet (where possible) to participate in worked examples.

This workshop is delivered in support of the Austroads research project SAG6043 “A Compendium of Effective Countermeasures and Strategies for Government and the Community”.
