Raised Safety Platforms (RSPs) are a vertical deflection device increasingly used to reduce the maximum comfortable operating speed for vehicles to .. Read more Safe System collision speeds, particularly at intersections. The purpose of Austroads’ research report ‘Effectiveness and Implementation of Raised Safety Platforms’ was to provide clarity around the design and operation of RSPs and deepen the understanding of leading international practice across a range of applications and performance dimensions. There is evidence that RSPs are a promising road safety countermeasure. In this webinar Fabian Marsh, Hamish Mackie and Rebekah Thorne will outline the research approach and the key findings from the information review and sample investigations that have implications for future practice. Fabian Marsh is Senior Manager Road Safety for Waka Kotahi New Zealand Transport Agency. Fabian is responsible for leading and influencing a step change in New Zealand’s road safety performance by driving an increased understanding and implementation of the Safe System approach and establishing a clear strategic direction for Waka Kotahi’s contribution to Road to Zero, New Zealand’s national road safety strategy. Rebekah has coordinated a number of road safety and active travel trials and significantly contributed to evaluations of Raised Safety Platforms and Intersection Speed Zones.
