This Thesis describes the methods used to develop a systematic approach to road safety management that may be used by public sector authorities concerned with planning purposes, using Cyprus as a case study. This was carried out by developing a road safety model, based on iRAP’s Road Safety Toolkit, which was first tested using simulated data and eventually on two hazardous road networks in Cyprus. The model developed consists of five parts:

Part A, where a selection amongst various road safety measures for the needs of the road network may be chosen.
Part B, allows the crash and casualty costs an area characteristics of the road network to be specified. This part also enables the user to price each chosen road safety measure so that Parts C and D can automatically provide crash and casualty economic assessment results
Part E provides the future effectiveness of the measures, according to predicted road crash and casualty data.
The research showed that the model produced is effective and easy to use by road safety practitioners and if it is applied in a systematic manner it can be adapted to meet the local conditions in any country.
