These projects look firstly at the development of safer road intersections to mitigate accidents. This work was undertaken with Monash Accident Research Centre (MUARC) under a project sponsored by VicRoads. The tram track sense of place research work was supported by the Brazilian Governments Science without Borders program.

The work speculates on a raft of potential communications through track and intersection that better enables way-finding as well as safety at intersections and creating a visual character to the city centre.
