Abstract

Road infrastructure is one of the main factors determining the level of safety road transport system. Installation of good and complete infrastructure components along the road would reduce the rate of accidents from happening. Accidents are the most undesirable things happen, but no doubt every year, millions of road users were killed and injured due to road accidents. Therefore, the authorities should take steps to create a program that will periodically monitor, restore and also do the improvement on road infrastructure to ensure that the road infrastructure is able to function properly, thus helping to reduce the rate of accidents in Malaysia. The main goal of this study was to analyze the audit road infrastructural along F050 route which is from KM 7 to KM 28 based on Road Safety Audit. Several methods were used to obtain data such as observations and research, accident statistics and simple statistics. Through these methods, the data were analysed by using average index, HIRARC and simple statistics. From the analysis, it was found that the road infrastructure level in the study area was less satisfying. Besides that, research results show that the level of risk due to road infrastructure gradually increases at certain places. Hence, the authority should be play more important roles to conduct maintenance and improvement on road infrastructures that poses high risk of accidents to ensure the safety of road users. It is hoped that through continuously this research it will provide sufficient information to public and researches to curb with the ever growing road accidents
