Main Roads have identified local road mid-block and intersections in urban areas as a significant road safety concern and is rolling out a series of intersection treatments across multiple urban areas.
Low-cost intersection treatments have been applied on an area wide or whole-of-street approach to maximise the effect and value for money.
The types of treatments chosen were those that could be installed within existing intersection footprints with minimal civil works undertaken.
While anecdotal evidence and post-opening observations suggest the treatments have been
successful, it is crucial to be able to accurately assess the treatments performance.
