Improving Pedestrian Safety on Urban Arterials: Learning from Australasia

Source: Federal Highway Administration (FHWA)

A recent Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Global Benchmarking Program report documents findings from a research team studying Australian and New Zealand approaches to reduce pedestrian fatalities and serious injuries on urban, signalized arterial roadways. The team conducted a literature review and interviews with subject matter experts to inform a week-long study tour in Australasia to identify approaches in policy, planning, and design that may be applied to US arterials roadways. Key research findings and recommendations include integrating: Road Safety Audit processes into new projects; the Movement and Place Framework into existing programs and initiatives; and network-level approaches in speed management.
