Publication no: AGRD06-10 Pages: 294
Guide to Road Design Part 6: Roadside Design, Safety and Barriers provides an introduction to roadside design and guidance on roadside safety and the selection and use of road safety barrier systems.
Roadsides have to accommodate many features that support the road and the safe and efficient operation of traffic, and have to be designed with regard to environmental requirements.
Part 6 provides information to enable designers to understand principles that lead to the design of safe roads, identify hazards, undertake a risk assessment process of roadside hazards, establish the need for treatment of hazards and determine the most appropriate treatment to mitigate hazards. A comprehensive design process, guidance and design considerations are provided for the selection of a suitable road safety barrier and for the lateral and longitudinal placement of road safety barrier systems.
