The treatment of crash locations involves the application of road safety engineering knowledge and experience to make roads safer after crashes occur.

This program will explain the step-by-step process of how to: identify crash locations; diagnose the crash problem and its causes; select a countermeasure which targets the problem; and design a safe remedial treatment and establish its cost-effectiveness. The workshop acknowledges and follows the current Road Safety paradigm, the Safe System approach. Based on the 2nd Edition of the Guide to Road Safety Part 8: Treatment of Crash Locations, this workshop will incorporate the results of crash data analysis and other resource material for the relevant jurisdiction.


Participants are required to bring a copy of the Austroads Guide to Road Safety Part 8: Treatment of Crash Locations.
