Studies are an integral and vital part of road safety engineering. A variety of studies are carried out by PAF to enable our engineers and client to fully understand the problems and issues relating to the location, route or area. Such studies include:
Scheme Identification Studies: A detailed document which will involve gathering and analysing considerable information such as collision data, crash types, traffic and turning counts, speed surveys, vulnerable road user requirements, site observations, assessment of existing highway geometry and infrastructure, proposed development, consultation with stakeholders and residents.
Conflict Studies: A tool to identify and understand road safety issues and help to choose the most appropriate form of remedial measure to implement. Depending on the nature of the site the study will involve different surveillance methods, over different time periods. Experienced engineers will identify conflicts or near miss situations where road users are put at risk.
Pedestrian Movement Studies:
