All audits are undertaken in accordance with Austroads guidelines, but also take into account the specific needs of individual state road authorities.  Audits can be undertaken in any state on a “fly in, fly out” basis to conduct site inspections and initial meetings with clients, with design audits and report writing then undertaken at either our Adelaide or Melbourne offices.


In total, we have ten highly experienced road safety auditors on staff, all accredited with the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (DIT) in South Australia and VicRoads in Victoria. Our auditors are also accredited in New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia.
