dc.description.abstract Transport provides a range of benefits to saaety in terms of mobili!], accessand economicgrowth. However, there are negative impacts of transport, not least in terms of environmental degradation, damage to proper(y, traffic accidentsand loss of life. In S ri Lanka, Road Traffic Crashes (RTCs) are responsiblefor a substantial fraction of morbidity and mortali!] and are responsiblefor moreyears of life loss than most of human diseases. Taking its cues, this paper focuses on RTCs, the reduction of ivhich is an important aim of suitable transport policy worldwide. In this study, the authors have tried to delineate road specificfactors that collectivelYrepresent the principal cause of three (people, vehicle and road) out of RTCs and which is less concerned in Sri Lankan transport researchers. In that context, the primary o~jectiveof this paper is to identify a series of relationships between RTCs and roadpattern focusing road configuration fry using spacesyntax. en_US
