Traffic Advisory Leaflet 5/11: Quality Audit


Publication date: 2011
Ranking: essential

This leaflet explains the Quality Audit process.

The Quality Audit process can be applied to highway, traffic management or development schemes. It allows for thorough reviews of projects using a series of discrete, but linked evaluations. It ensures that the broad objectives raised by engineers and users alike can be assessed.

The key benefits of integrating a Quality Audit into the management of a project are that it:

  • Delivers a transparent process that demonstrates that needs of all user groups have been considered both locally and strategically
  • Puts check procedures in place to enable objectives to be delivered
  • Contributes to cost efficiency in design and implementation
  • Encourages engagement with stakeholders.
