Lunchtime webinar which provides a look at the basic hazards in the urban environment, engineering measures applied, road safety audit issues and in particular the issues relating to recent schemes to reallocate road space.
“These are unprecedented times” is a phrase we have heard frequently over the last 3 months, and some roads authorities have taken the opportunity that lower motor vehicle use has presented to create more space for pedestrians and cyclists.
As part of the design and implementation process, road safety audits have been carried out on a number of schemes across the country, and these have identified a number of new issues.
This Webinar, hosted by CIHT Scotland, will look at the basic hazards in the urban environment, engineering measures applied, road safety audit issues and in particular the issues relating to recent schemes to reallocate road space.
This event is aimed at Designers, Road Safety Auditors and Roads Authority Clients.
