One of the best way to improve road safety is with well-designed intersections that can show case design and safety the principles above under the mantle of SAFE SURE.
Key proposal for intersection redesign under safe sure –
Improved geometry for efficient movement of traffic with reduced wait times. Adequate turning radii to prevent speeding while allowing large vehicles a comfortable access. Improved visibility for both motorists and pedestrians. Safe crossings and refuge islands for pedestrians and cyclists. Creating accessible and barrier free intersections for the old, young, physically challenged and visually impaired. Traffic calming measures. Improved lighting. Improved signage. Reclaiming public space for the city like landmarking and branding. Storm-water drainage for the intersection connecting to the city’s networked infrastructure. Future Provisions for the location of smart components and traffic management solutions.
