Abley’s specialist strategic road safety team have won two prestigious awards at the 2018 ATSIP International Traffic Records Forum held recently in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (USA).

Inappropriate or excessive speed is a major road safety issue in New Zealand and Australia, resulting in approximately a third of road accident deaths. Haris Zia of Abley is running a series of workshops throughout September in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney and Brisbane as part of a research project commissioned by Austroads into the applicability of Infrastructure Risk Rating (IRR) for use by State and Local Governments.
School cycle parking. Such a simple thing to provide - one would think.

It's well known that the volume of traffic is noticably reduced during the school holidays. But it’s not just a congestion issue drivers face during the school term. This extra traffic also increases the risk of accidents around schools and exacerbates air quality problems, which in turn affects the health of the whole community.
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.
