Vectos has a dedicated and qualified Road Safety Team, with the ability to undertake RSAs and provide road safety advice.
Road Safety Audits
Undertaking a RSA is good practice for new roads or significant changes to the existing highway network. It is an independent assessment carried out in the design process and following construction. It identifies potential road safety issues and recommends measures to eliminate or mitigate them.
- Stage 1 – Preliminary Design
- Stage 2 – Detailed Design
- Stage 3 – Completion of Construction
- Stage 4 – Post-Operation
Road Safety Engineering and Design
Vectos has experience in road safety engineering, including the detailed design and implementation of highway link, junctions, access design, traffic calming and urban/rural safety management.
Collision Investigation and Prevention
Understanding how collisions occur and outcomes help develop ways to reduce incidents and casualty severity. Many schemes require detailed collision investigation, from small development schemes to major route studies of the urban network required for Transport Assessments relating to large development projects.
Highway and junction projects must address safety. Some require in-depth analysis of PIC data to identify clusters of collisions to determine the type and frequency of collisions. This informs recommendations for remedial work options in terms of changes to the existing highway design, traffic calming measures or making recommendations within RSAs or NMU Audits.
