Road Safety Audit Stage 2

Detailed Design

Road Safety Audit Stage 2 or Combined 1&2

Completion of Detailed Design

A Stage 2 Road Safety Audit is undertaken at the completion of detailed design.  The audit team focuses on the more detailed aspects of the highway scheme.

If, for any reason, a Stage 1 Road Safety Audit has not been carried out (for example, where a scheme is of such a scale that no preliminary design has been necessary and the scheme has progressed directly to detailed design), Stages 1 and 2 should be combined at detailed design.  This should be referred to as a combined Stage 1 and 2 Audit. 

For a Stage 2 Road Safety Audit, the Audit Team consider the layout of junctions, position of signs, carriageway markings, lighting provision and other issues such as drainage, pavements, kerbing and landscaping.
