Preventing Collisions Before They Happen
Road Safety Audits prevent collisions by monitoring the design process for opportunities to improve road safety.
Opus is a leader in Road Safety Audits (RSAs) and was one of the authors of the Canadian Road Safety Audit Guide. RSAs are a formal safety examination of a road project that is completed by a team which is independent from the design and construction teams. RSAs are commonly undertaken during the preliminary design, 90% design, 100% design and pre-opening project stages. An independent audit at one or more project stages improves the safety of transportation infrastructure before it is built, allowing for cost-effective improvement options.
Opus completes RSAs for a range of transportation projects, varying from small single intersections to highway corridors and transit centres. A brief list of Opus' recent RSAs include:
- UBC Transit Centre
- Powell Street Overpass Project
- Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Combo Project
- Kicking Horse Canyon Project
- Anthony Henday Drive
- Cycling Audit of Golden Ears Bridge
- Tyson Road and Prest Road Roundabouts
