This proposal forms part of the national Early-Stage Proposal for Regional road network safety improvements. It involves the introduction of modern road safety infrastructure technology and features, to improve road safety at high-risk locations. This proposal should be aligned with updated Austroads guidance including the Guide to Road Safety and Guide to Road Design.
Each year in NSW, over two-thirds of all fatalities occur on country roads.
In NSW, these locations have been identified, assessed and prioritised by the NSW Government based on road crash data and the impact of infrastructure deficiencies. Potential improvements include the introduction of new safety barriers, wide centre lines, wider roads and/or audio tactile line marking to attain a safe road cross section.
