The Victorian Safe System Road Infrastructure Program (SSRIP) (now the Safer Roads Program) is highlighted in the report as an example of this best practice through a clear strategic direction, intelligent risk identification, countermeasures deployed to address systemic risks and monitoring and evaluation of the effectiveness.
