This report reviews the fourth motorway safety performance study carried out on behalf of the Highways Agency. Previous studies were carried out in 1982, 1987 and 1992 and have provided the Agency with key information on the safety of traffic management at major road works. This study has monitored 29 major motorway road works sites and has recorded Personal Injury Accident details for an exposure of 4,176 million vehicle kilometres over the period November 2001 to July 2003. The study showed that there was no significant difference in the rate of Personal Injury Accidents when road works were present. (A)
