Research Project: Road Safety Improvement in a Mixed-Use Urban Area

Want to help improve the safety of our roads?…🛣️🚲🤓

The Curtin School of Design and the Built Environment is calling for input as part of an ongoing road safety research project

The research project aims to investigate user-oriented road safety preference and their perceptions and motivation toward a more responsive and comprehensive road safety strategy. This information will help to establish good governance principles in road safety strategies, understand users’ preferences, risk perceptions and motivation within mixed-used development, and develop a sustainable mobility framework for road safety satisfying key components such as universal access/shared space, safety and efficiency based on review and survey results. 

It is hoped this kind of information can assist local councils to improve their local road safety action plans, strategies and policies to better suit community needs.
