FY18 Sustainability Report Transurban 18
Road safety strategic framework
Transurban is focused on being a leader in road safety. We have a range of measures in place to support the safety of our employees, contractors and customers on our road networks. We’ve adopted the Safe System approach to underpin our Road Safety Strategic Framework and the road safety action plans in each of our operating regions. Our plans set out our goals and objectives, actions, and performance measures. The Safe System is about recognising human vulnerability, sharing responsibility for road safety and creating a forgiving road system through safe roads, safe vehicles, safe speed and safe people.
During FY18 we: • completed the Regional Road Safety Action Plans • analysed of injury crashes on Transurban’s Australian network by Monash University Accident Research Centre • made a submission to the NSW Staysafe Committee’s inquiry into heavy vehicle safety • made a submission to the Commonwealth’s inquiry into the National Road Safety Strategy.

Acknowledge human fallibility
Through safety features reduce the risk of crashing and severity of injury when a crash h appens.
People make mistakes. They shouldn’t be
seriously injured or lose their life because of this.
Create a forgiving system
Road safety is a shared responsibility—everyone has a role to play to keep our customers, community and employees safe.
Through safe design, build and operate roads that help reduce
the risk of crashing and protect road users when crashes do happen.
