Road Safety Audits with ORS

Do you require a Road Safety Audit?

 

ORS have over 10 years’ experience in providing Road Safety Audits at all stages to our public and private sector clients. Our road safety team is approved by the NRA to carry out audits on the national primary road network.
A road safety audit is an independent examination of the safety performance of a proposed or existing piece of infrastructure. The safety evaluation takes place in stages. These stages examine the potential safety risk at initial design, detailed design and before opening a scheme to the public.

During each of the defined stages of a road safety audit, a series of problems are identified by the audit which could cause a safety risk. A series of recommendations are then provided by the safety auditors to minimise the safety risk of the scheme. These recommendations are then usually taken on board by the designer or applicant who revise their designs accordingly and re-submit to the overseeing authority (Local Authority).

There are traditionally three main stages of a safety audit. These are Stage 1, Stage 2 and Stage 3. For typical planning applications involving a proposed residential, commercial or industrial scheme which may involve an internal road network and a new access onto the public road for example, the stage 1 and stage 2 audit process can be combined into a single stage 1/2 road safety audit. These are usually requested by the local authority in a pre-planning meeting with the road design department or at further information stage. A stage 3 safety audit is usually required before a scheme is opened to the public. In reference to the latest national standards, feasibility stage and stage 4,5 & 6 audits can also be required depending on the complexity of the road or safety scheme.
