Proform Civil was pleased to provide services to design much needed central and edge line marking and signage on O'Brien and Clenton roads, from Toodyay Road to Berry Road. The project was funded through a recovery program from state government and arose from a number of fatalities, one of which was the famous race car driver Peter Brock.
The geometry of the road is 23km's of undulating terrain with large straights in between sections of multiple tight curves. To determine the centreline treatment and sections of the design which would be safe for overtaking, Proform Civil organised for the road to be surveyed to enable the design to be undertaken in 12d civil software.
Proform Civil studied the geometry of every curve taking into account super elevation, radius, vertical geometry and widths to determine the level of treatment required. CAM's, RRPM's, line marking and advanced warning signs were designed as per relevant standards to improve the road safety.
Desktop and onsite meetings were held with the local authority and Main Roads to review the design and existing black spots. With the use of our advanced methodology and processes throughout this design we were able to get the project approved for construction in an impressive time frame, which was critical in order for the client to meet the parameters to receive funding for the project.
The added signage and pavement marking has improved the safety in all conditions throughout the entire stretch of this unforgiving route and will continue to contribute to the reduction of accidents and fatalities in the future.
