Road Safety Audits

Our transport team provides independent evaluation during the design and construction of road schemes in relation to road planning design, road safety engineering (road safety audits and inspections) and traffic analysis, and assessment for both public and private sectors, identifying potential hazards to all road users. An RSA independently examines the proposed or existing piece of infrastructure in stages. These stages investigate the potential safety risk at initial design, detailed design and before opening a scheme to the public. An RSA is a statutory requirement on any schemes/developments on the national road network. RSAs can be carried out at various stages of the project lifecycle – Stage F (RSA) carried out at the feasibility stage of the project, right the way to completion of construction to ‘live’ highway and accident monitoring in the months following project completion.

The main aim of a Road Safety Audit is to ensure that road schemes operate as safe as practicable, minimise risk, conflict, collision numbers and severity and to ensure that all road users are considered and improve safety awareness in the design process.

Our transportation team works on various schemes including:

  • New highway/motorway schemes
  • Improvement schemes
  • Residential schemes
  • Shared surface schemes
  • Traffic management
  • Temporary traffic management works
  • Cycling/greenway schemes
