ROAD SAFETY AUDIT FOR SELECTED ROAD LINKS IN ARVALLI
Keywords:Priority Index, Present Serviceability Index, Road safety, Accident rate model
In Most regions of the world, the epidemic of road traffic fatalities is on the upsurge with over 1.2 million people die every year due to road crashes and about 50 million suffer nonfatal injuries. According to Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MORT&H) India, the analysis of road accident data 2016 reveals that about 1,374 accidents and 413 deaths take place every day on Indian roads which further translates into 55 accidents and 17 deaths on an average every hour in ur country. The goal of this study is to understand roadway accident causes in selected route and reducing the frequency and severity of crashes on selected roadways. To achieve such a goal, traffic accident data, roadway geometric data, traffic volume data, surface condition data for the selected linking road are collected and analyzed. Develop models for accident rates and priority index. Determine Present Serviceability Index. It also aims to reduce fatal accidents and serious injury and to develop road accident model for selected road links.
