Safer Australian Roads and Highways achieves Major Road Safety Success
sets a precedent as High speed lane on Hume Freeway converted to Breakdown Lane
- Watershed moment in road safety history, with a dangerous 1.5 kilometre section of the Hume Freeway being changed from three to two lanes to provide a breakdown lane that meets the Australian Road standards” SARAH spokesperson Peter Frazer announced.
- The conversion of the third lane into a breakdown lane – direct result of the successful lobbying by Safer Australian Roads and Highways (SARAH) following the horrific death of Ms Sarah Frazer on that section of Freeway on 15 February 2012.
- Major road safety precedent that will affect road design and maintenance in NSW and will have flow effects in all jurisdictions
- NSW Government recognises Duty of Care to ensure road users involved in an incident, breakdown or crash no longer to be placed in harm’s way.
- Implication for other dangerous sections of roads and highways to ensure proper breakdown lanes exist
