Mount Lindesay Highway Safety Review
The Mount Lindesay Highway Safety Review was designed to identify road safety issues and develop a program of integrated road safety initiatives to reduce the incidence and severity of crashes along the length of the Mount Lindesay Highway.
The review was undertaken in 2015 on the Mount Lindesay Highway between Logan and the Queensland/New South Wales border. The Mount Lindesay Highway has been identified as one of Queensland’s poorest safety performing roads.
The areas surrounding the highway are experiencing continued growth, with traffic volumes increasing significantly every year. Many sections of the Mount Lindesay Highway are nearing capacity, which is affecting safety.
The aim of the safety review was to identify road safety issues and develop a program of integrated road safety initiatives to reduce the incidence and severity of crashes along the length of the Mount Lindesay Highway. The review outcomes will help guide future funding allocations and improvement projects for the Mount Lindesay Highway.
The benefits of a safety review include:
- consistent treatment for recurring issues along a route
- cost savings of delivering one large project or similar treatments instead of several smaller projects
- increased safety benefits by integrating engineering, behavioural and enforcement interventions
- community ownership as a result of input and involvement in identifying road safety issues
- a better methodology for roads that have route-based issues rather than ‘black spot’ issues.
