Roads are the arteries of our community, connecting people, goods and services to one another. With a targeted and sustained approach to making these journeys safer, together we can strive for Zero.
As a growing population places greater demands on our road network, the potential for mishaps only increases. We're all prone to human error and while mistakes will happen on our roads, there’s plenty we can do using a Safe System approach to help prevent them or reduce their severity.
With more than 25 years' experience as road safety consultants, including as lead partners on New Zealand's Safe Roads Alliance, we have the expertise to advise on and design safer transport corridors. This starts right from the beginning, where we can develop and evaluate large safety programmes through a Safe System lens and secure funding for them. We challenge the traditional ways of thinking and recognise the importance of doing things differently if we're to achieve the ambitious targets ahead of us.
The success of road safety improvements whether it be through safer intersections, modified speed limits, or safer public spaces rely on a change in user perception and behaviour. The psychology behind influencing user behaviour is understood by our road safety specialists and supported by our related experience in urban design - where we can integrate public spaces with traffic calming measures, cycleways and footpaths to enhance the overall safety and liveability of our towns and cities.
