We are delighted to announce that five abstracts submitted by Abley staff have been accepted for presentation at the Australasian Road Safety Conference to be held 3 - 5 October in Sydney this year.

Paul Durdin will be presenting two papers. ‘Exploring local government challenges in effective road safety delivery’ highlights the dynamics of local government investment and delivery of road safety in New Zealand.   He will also present ‘Best practice in road safety infrastructure programs’ which outlines the results of an Austroads’ research project identifying best practice recommendations for Road Safety Infrastructure Programs that align with the Safe System approach.

Haris Zia will present ‘Calibrating infrastructure risk rating (IRR) to inform speed management in Queensland’, where the Infrastructure Risk Rating (IRR) model is developed for Queensland roads. Infrastructure Risk Rating (IRR) is a road assessment methodology designed to assess road safety risk, to inform the speed management process. 

Steve Ford will present on ‘Northland Transportation Alliance Risk Mapping Application’. This interactive application uses risk analyses and metrics for the Northland Transportation Alliance to plan and prioritise intervention programs on their networks.

Carl O’Neil will present on ‘Deployment of intelligent stop warning signs in New Zealand’.  This paper covers the identification of where new intelligent stop signs may be appropriate to warn drivers of an approaching intersection via flashing lights.
