Intersection safety system now operational2 Sep. 2021
We are pleased to announced that a Rural Junction Active Warning System (RJAWS), installed by the Department for Infrastructure and Transport, is now operational at the intersection of Angaston and Stockwell roads.
The system, originally developed in Sweden and trialed in New Zealand (NZ) and Victoria, is designed and proven to improve safety at rural intersections where potential crash risk exists, reducing crash likelihood and severity.
An evaluation conducted by Adelaide University's Centre for Automotive Safety Research across four South Australian locations found that when the temporary speed limit signs are activated, the average travel speed along the major road is reduced by between 11.3 km/h to 22.1 km/h, with the average relative risk of a casualty crash reduced by between 43%-58%.
