Safe Systems Assessment Framework for Movement and Place
The Safe Systems Assessment Framework for Movement and Place Guide provides guidance on physical design and management treatments to improve movement, place and safety outcomes. It recognises that places designed through the single lens of capacity, or indeed road safety, often do not have good outcomes for the liveability and enjoyment of a road or street. Merging the NSW Movement and Place Framework with the Safe Systems approach, the Guide provides planning practitioners with direction on improving place outcomes, to achieve a safe road and street environment for all customers.
The Guide provides guidance on best-practice for design and treatment application through an interactive treatment dashboard as well as case studies and layouts showing a plan and a section schematic drawing of each case study for a mid-block and intersection location. It functions as a supporting guide to the Practitioner’s Guide to Movement and Place because of its role in balancing the conflicting needs of all road users; enhancing road safety and the perception of safety; and allocating limited road space based on road user priorities within a particular street environment.
