Vulnerable User Road Safety Enhancements for Transportation Management

The purpose of Transportation Asset Management (TAM) is to provide a required level of service of transportation infrastructure assets in the most cost-effective manner, while providing safe transportation options to all users. In urban areas, these users include not only motorized vehicles, but also pedestrians, cyclists, gaining users as well as users with disabilities. It is crucial that TAM decision-making incorporates the needs of all users using the transportation infrastructure, in order to promote transportation options that foster healthy life-style, improve quality of life as well as reduce greenhouse gas emissions and inequity. The main objective of this project is to develop a methodology that incorporates vulnerable user road safety into transportation asset management decisions, and provide guidelines to practitioners for its implementation.
