This is the final report of a project (IRRD No. 605759) which involved a critical review of Australian and overseas urban planning practice aimed at road safety improvements, based on direct contact with urban local government authorities and planning bodies and an extensive literature search. The report summarises the sources of information and outlines the recommended planning practices found in key Australian, Swedish and South African guidelines. The extent of actual application of these principles is then discussed. The effectiveness of the measures was of principal interest, and so reports of monitoring and evaluation were particularly sought. It became evident that there is much opinion on this subject, less real action, and very little proof or demonstrated justification.
