Research to look at side road layouts
Story from RoadSafety GB.
A new research project has been launched to explore issues linked to the design of side road layouts and the way priority is offered to different users.
The project is being carried out by the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol), after the university received £117,000 of funding from the Road Safety Trust.
The aim of the UWE project is to provide a basis for better side road designs, so that risk for road users is reduced.
This will be achieved by analysing and categorising different types of provision, investigating the risk reduction of different designs, understanding how road users behave in different circumstances, and why they behave in the way they do.
