What is involved in a Safety Assessment?

A Road Safety Assessment, sometimes known as a Road Safety Appraisal, is an independent comparative assessment of the road safety implications of different scheme options, or a comparative assessment of risks to different road users within one design option. Road Safety Assessments require, as their base, some understanding and application of risk assessment techniques.

This comparative assessment does provide an opportunity to assess the safety implications of fundamental design principles. The opportunity to make comparative assessments makes Road Safety Assessments an ideal tool for use within the early stages of design – particularly within a Transport Assessment for a development proposal.

About

Professional Multifunctional Network survey vehicle is used for Mapping of Highway, Road, and Structure Condition. It survey through Mobile Bridge Inspection Unit mounted on Network survey vehicle. This type of non-destructive testing including inventory and condition assessment is the primary concern of corridor management.

Leica is best in robust professional Multifunctional Network Survey Vehicle System, Our Network Survey Vehicle is based on the latest survey techniques utilizing Laser, Global Positioning System and Video image processing tools. This type of Survey Vehicle is used for automatic collection of road condition related data for Highways safety. The inventory data includes measurement of pavement surface roughness, road geometrics (gradient, horizontal curvature, and cross slope), Rut Depth using Spread Lasers, Sensor Measure Texture Depth, Mean Profile Depth and GPS Coordinates (X, Y, Z) viz. longitude, latitude & altitude etc.

Key Features of the Network Survey Vehicle System are:

  1. High survey speed up to 100 km/hr
  2. Longitudinal (International Roughness Index) and Transverse profiling (Rut Depth) conforming to ASTM standards
  3. Pavement Texture in terms of Mean Profile Depth
  4. Slope, Cross-fall and Radius of curvature
  5. GPS Coordinates (X, Y, Z) viz. longitude, latitude & altitude using DGPS
  6. Video imaging for Roadside furniture / Road Asset
  7. Advanced data processing and reporting software
  8. Real time in-vehicle data acquisition software for display and collection of data from all parameters simultaneously
  9. Post processing software for data analysis and report preparation

 

Apart from it can be used in

  1. Roadside inventory and asset management
  2. Network and project level road and asset collection surveys
  3. Contractor quality control
  4. Airport runway maintenance
  5. Road safety assessment
  6. Road geometry and mapping surveys

 

Benefits:

  • Detect the root causes of damages and road problems
  • Determine the exact location and dimensions of the problem areas
  • Adapt new design practices to solve the problem
  • Learn to move towards proactive pavement maintenance policies
  • Get longer pavement life times and better roads
  • Gain savings with asset management costs

 

Road scanners’ surveys and analysis uses the latest technologies: GPR, laser scanners, thermal cameras and accelerometers, as well as deflection surveys.

  • Project and network level surveys
  • Street asset management projects
  • Project level road diagnostics and rehabilitation design
  • Forensic projects to investigate road and street problems and detect the root causes
  • Quality control and quality assurance projects

 

Roadscanners is at the forefront of developing NDT survey methods and techniques for roads and streets.

The data is interpreted with our own commercially available software to provide comprehensive solutions, investigations and compatible formats.
