A road safety audit is a formalised assessment conducted by a team of road safety experts to identify possible and probable road safety issues in new and proposed road and infrastructure projects, existing roadways and infrastructure, and roadworks and infrastructure under construction

Research in the UK has found that on sites with audited designs the average annual number of casualties dropped from 2.08 to 0.83 compared with non-audited sites which dropped from 2.6 to 2.34*.

To ensure new road facilities incorporate current safety and accessibility principals during conceptual and design stages.

To minimise the potential for accidents during and post construction.

To minimise the possibility of legal action against authorities, architects, designers, developers, planners and contractors.

To ensure pedestrian safety and accessibility.

To meet the ever demanding constraints of shrinking budget allocations it is critical to make certain that any concept development, design and construction expenditure is incurred just once.

A project of any size can benefit from an audit, even minor works. Generally an audit should be undertaken at the design/planning phase, traffic management/construction phase and pre-opening phase.

Modern trends are towards lawsuits and litigation. The possibility of accidents, property damage, human suffering and costly legal action should be a major consideration of government road authorities, engineering companies, consultants and contractors.

This is dependant on the size of the project and the component being audited, but a typical concept traffic management plan can normally be turned around in a few business days, and a design audit normally within 5-15 business days. For a post-implementation traffic management audit, every effort is made to submit a report of the site within 24 hours, however, issues identified are usually raised on site with traffic management staff so that they can address them immediately.

Discuss any issues / errors / misunderstanding / clarifications with the audit team, then decide on whether to accept or reject the audit finding, and provide sound reasoning. Often the audit will need to be provided to the relevant authority. Send the final responses to the audit team for their knowledge, learning, and records
