This deliverable reports on the work in Task 5.1. This addresses one of the main objectives of WP5 by contributing towards the creation of an inventory of estimates of risk factors and safety effects for road infrastructure. The current report focuses on identifying and evaluating infrastructure related risk factors and related road safety problems by:
1. Presenting a taxonomy of road infrastructure related risks
This taxonomy provides a comprehensive overview of the infrastructure risk factors identified as being road safety problems influencing crash risk.
2. Identifying “hot topics” of concern for relevant stakeholders
Thorough consultation with relevant stakeholder groups the risk factors of greatest interest have been identified.
3. Evaluating the relative importance for crash outcomes (risk, frequency, severity) for each identified risk factor.
As part of Task 5.1 the SafetyCube methodology is applied to existing scientific literature considering each infrastructure risk factor. The evidence has been evaluated and each risk factor allocated a colour code demonstrating the relative impact on road safety and an abstract summarising the each risk factor. This methodology advances the current state of the art. Although existing repositories of safety measures exist (e.g. CMF clearing house; Australian Clearing house) these only consider infrastructure measures. The DSS of SafetyCube has a much broader scope than these previous repositories, or for example the Handbook of Road Safety Measures (Elvik et al., 2009).
