New technology to boost road safety

Ahead of National Road Safety Week next week, the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) has developed new cutting-edge technology it believes will help deliver safer road infrastructure and potentially save lives.

NetRisk2 is a web-based tool aimed primarily at Councils and road agencies, which combines multiple road risk assessment models into one interface, allowing a step-change in the way high-risk roads are prioritised for treatment.

Among its many features, the tool allows Councils and road managers to test the impact that road improvements and changes – like road widening, wide centre line markings, and clearing the road side of obstructions – will have on road safety before work begins.

Councils and road managers can find out more about ARRB’s NetRisk2 and how they can access it at
