Abstract

[Abstract]: The Department of Main Roads controlled roads constitute less than 10% of the total length of roads within the Toowoomba Local Government Area, yet approximately 30% of all reported accidents within the last 15 years has occur on these roads. This research project will seek to determine whether road crashes on the State and Federal highways in Toowoomba are over represented in overall Toowoomba Crash Statistics by comparing the rate of crashes on the declared roads against the different hierarchy levels of Toowoomba City Council controlled roads. All reported accidents use a coded system for ease of use when describing the movements of road users at the time of road crashes occurring. An analysis of crashes according to the coding method used by Toowoomba City Council was also carried out to gain an understanding of how crash types in the Toowoomba area are changing through time.
