Pedestrian safety: the R300 freeway road safety improvement project, Cape Town, South Africa
It is important to ensure that significant investments in road infrastructure addresses the needs of all road users and does not inadvertently increase road casualty often a consequence of increased mobility and higher operating speeds.
The R300 Freeway Road Safety Improvement Project involves the provision of much needed pedestrian infrastructure as part of a major road upgrade project, as well as the use of unconventional methods to engage communities to take ownership of road safety responsibilities as it impacts their daily travel needs.
