Driver fatigue is an important road safety issue to be managed. Fatigue reduces the ability of a person to drive safely and affects judgement, ability to react and maintain vehicle control.

The key to reducing crashes related to fatigue is to encourage motorists to stop and rest.

The following design principles were adopted to develop the strategy:

  • plenty of opportunities for drivers to rest
  • attractive and clean to encourage drivers to stop for a break
  • meet the needs of the all road users
  • sufficient parking spaces to meet current and future demand
