Road Design

Safe Road Designs

The designs of our roads should encourage appropriate road user behaviour and safe speeds.

The following can help maintain road safety:

Roundabout treatments at the intersection

They are a safer alternative to traffic signals and stop signs

Availability of Sidewalks

Presence of sidewalks for pedestrians to stay away from oncoming traffic

Center Barricades on Roads

They help restrain an errant vehicle from falling off the road structures

Traffic Signs and Signals

Traffic signs or road signs are signs erected at the side of or above roads to give instructions or provide information to road users.

The following can help maintain road safety:

Working Traffic Lights

They must be fully functioning to help control traffic

Clear Speed Limit Signs

Appropriate speed signs must be installed in the required places

Installation of Traffic Cameras

To help monitor and capture traffic offenders
