Abstract

New Zealand now has a tool that has been developed to identify high risk locations for safety interventions in order to reduce the horrific financial and emotional cost of road fatalities.  The Safer Journeys Risk Assessment Tool or more commonly, ‘MegaMaps’, and has been produced by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency with the assistance of Abley, a national professional services firm. The tool is a significant asset for New Zealand.  This presentation will explain the tool, how it came to exist and why it is unique nationally and globally.  It will be of interest to academics, practitioners involved in data analytics as well as road safety practitioners. 

Join us for a networking lunch 12:30 pm followed by this interesting talk at 1:00 pm
