The Australian and Tasmanian Governments have committed to invest $500 million to improve safety on the Midland Highway over the next 10 years. Using the AusRAP methodology (which is the national road safety audit approach initiated by combined national motoring associations, including RACT), he objective of the investment is to lift the safety standard of this strategic highway to a minimum 3 star AusRAP safety rating over its entire length. For most of the Midland Highway, the predominant crash type is loss of control, most of which are single vehicle crashes with some resulting in head-on crashes and fatalities. 60% of the fatalities on the highway have been due to head-on crashes.
