THE OBJECTIVES of Casablanca Project ► Develop a new approach to resolve road safety problems in urban areas. ► Show to responsables at local level, using a case study, that road safety, mainly in urban area, needs a scientific approach; ► Give a material, from a study, to local authority to implement and to improve the safety of road users.
THE MAIN RESULTS OF THE STUDY
MAIN RESULTS OF THE STUDY ► Statistic analysis of accidents and victims within five years ► Institutional and organizational analysis of traffic safety in Casablanca city ► Mapping of accidents and victims using data for five years : ► Development of a specific GIS which made it possible to locate geo-physical accidents : (4682 traffic accidents and 5896 victims were located exactly in the map); ► Developing maps of accidents and victims as needed, particularly by sub- areas in the city (Prefecture), year, categories of users. All variables of the database accidents can be used to meet specific needs; ► Identification of 46 BS of traffic accidents in Casablanca city : junctions (24) and straight sections (22).
MAIN RESULTS OF THE STUDY ► Deep study for 36 among very dangerous black spots and recording video of the behaviour of road users in 10 BS; ► Proposal of adequat solutions in terms of infrastructures and signals; ► Made recommendations of actions and measures relating to road safety in urban areas in general, and selected BS in particular in terms of : ► behaviour; ► infrastructure; ► Taffic and transportation ; ► Institutional and management of road safety sector in the city.

THE TYPOLOGY OF ACCUMULATION ZONES Areas examined can be grouped as follows: – Main roads (boulevards) in the city; – Streets with high pedestrian traffic mainly near (rail stations, shopping centres, hospitals, schools,...); – Junctions ; – Highway interchanges ; – Exits from tunnels.
Point P21, Route Oulad Ziane ; BUS STATION ; tunnel EXIT
P18, Avenue Med VI angle R. Azzaitoune et R. Manutention Creating advanced sidewalks at pedestrian crossings Organazing parking Creating pedestrian crossings Close the TPC Guiding barriers to pedestrian crossing Adaptation of traffic lights : Phasing and handed over the scale
MalfunctionsRecommandationsActionsPrice total Price P20, Boulevard de la Résistance ; Rue Hajjaj Ibnou Artaa ; Tunnel EXIT Urban Boulevard with 6 lanes very large, amplified by the underpass. Provide a safe pedestrian crossing on this sector, Create and secure pedestrian crossings 2800 The speeds on the boulevard are quite high, but it is mainly a "cut" or urban pedestrian crossings are not organized, too long and very dangerous. Adjust the ends of body guard to eliminate the risk associated with a serious shock 0 Many illegal pedestrian crossings that take significant risks (lack of safe pedestrian crossing). Reinforcing signs of the underpass (problem of readability) Vertical signs of reporting underpass 6800 The vertical signs including treatment of the fixture of underpass is too limited. Rework profile across the area considering a separation of flow by a median strip side to shrink the overall grip Boulevard and avoid entrecroisements intempestifs.. Completion of a land full side The guards body of the structure are obstacles very dangerous for all users. Resume body guards (compliance with road safety standards) 30000
COMMUN DYSFUNCTIONS ► General problems identified from the analysis of 30 BS are : – Bad distribution of spaces between different kind of road users ; – Roads, Streets and junctions are very wide ; – Bicycles, moped and pedestrians are poorly considered in the Traffic management system ; – Lack of signals: light, horizontal and vertical ; – Lack of directional signs ; – Parking of cars are poorly organized.
RECOMMENDATIONS AND LESSONS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE AND CONTROL IN URBAN AREAS
GENERAL RECOMMANDATIONS 1. Introduce Road Safety Audit for all new projects; 2. Need to develop GIS to understand traffic accidents, mainly in big cities; 3. Need of technical guidelines concerning infrastructure management dedicated to : pedestrians, cyclists and motocyclists 4. Establishing evaluation system to follow : Traffic accidents / field analysis / countermeasures; 5. Definition of a new policy of Maintenance of equipment related to road safety.
RECOMMENDATIONS RELATED TO INFRASTRUCTURE ► Strengthen the safety of vulnerable road users by: - Make free sidewalks for pedestrians from: commercial activities, furnitures, plantation.. - Adopting new types of road safety equiment, particularly in residential areas in which there is a high concentration of pedestrians to reduce speed: Humps, elevated walkways,… -Introduction walk zones where the speed can not exceed 30 km/h, mainly near commercial areas, schools, and near public equipment in general; ► Establish a horizontal and vertical signals adapted to the safety of pedestrians ; ► Provide appropriate cycle paths beside the streets when it’s available;
RECOMMENDATIONS RELATED TO INFRASTRUCTURE ► Reduce the size of central crossroads in the main junctions with traffic signals, and create special lanes for "turn left" ► Introduce Smart Regulation Systems for traffic, especially in big cities ;
