Road Safety Audit
Road Safety Audits are normally required where a change in the physical layout of the highway network is proposed that could change road user behaviour or adversely affect the outcome of a collision/incident. In addition many Local Planning and Highway Authorities also require the submission of a Road Safety Audit as part of the adoption process of a new public highway,
Road Safety Audits are undertaken on Trunk Roads and Motorways in line with the requirements of the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges; and must be undertaken by a specialist team with detailed training, certificates and experience in this function. Road Safety Audits undertaken on the Local Highway Network usually follow a similar approach to that set out in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges but must also comply with any local standards that are in place.
Road Safety Audits cover a number of different stages, stage one, two three and four, from initial design through to construction, and finally monitoring once in operation.
