Using Mass Crash Data to Identify the Benefits of Innovative Cycling Infrastructure
Keywords: Cycling Issues
Innovating bicycle infrastructure treatments are gaining popularity in Australia. There is a need to identify treatments that can be beneficial for treating prominent bicycle crashes. The presented methodology is used to align treatments with prominent crash types identified through the use of mass crash data. Results suggest that mass crash data, analysed at an aggregated level, may be used to relate the benefits of treatments to prominent crash types through identification of crash mechanisms. Gaps within the data were identified that prevent this method from being used to fully appreciate the benefits of certain treatments, especially those used at intersections.
