This project was commissioned to determine a practical and effective procedure for the identification and ranking of hazardous road locations throughout Australia. A study was conducted where potential procedures, identified from a detailed appreciation of overseas and Australian studies, were evaluated at urban intersections, urban sections and rural locations to determine preferred procedures. Selection criterion was in terms of accident risk and likely accident reduction and procedures were compared using their relative cost-effectiveness at this task. The study recommended procedures for the identification of hazardous road locations in Australia. A separate volume, Identification of Hazardous Road Locations: Procedural Guidelines has been prepared for practitioners involved in programmes to identify hazardous road locations.
