Road Safety Audits
Road Safety Audit is often required by highway and planning authorities when changes are proposed to an existing highway or in the creation of a new one.
The objective of Road Safety Audits (RSA) is to identify aspects of engineering interventions that could give rise to road safety problems and to suggest modifications that could improve road safety. It is a process that is undertaken by Road Safety Auditors independent of the design team. There are four stages to a road safety audit when considering highway works.
- Stage 1 – Completion of preliminary design.
- Stage 2 – Completion of detailed design.
- Stage 3 – Completion of construction.
- Stage 4 – Post opening monitoring.
At SANDS we have highly experienced Road Safety Auditors working on the simplest to the most complex of projects using DMRB GG119 and SQA-0170 for Transport for London(TfL) projects. SQA-170 is the procedure for carrying out Road Safety Audits (RSAs) on the Transport for London Road Network (TLRN).
