Narrow 3 Lane A Road

We have an existing section of 2+1 lane single carriageway, which has a good accident record despite having narrow lanes of 2X3m + 1X3.4m. Observations suggest that drivers of larger vehicles do not use the uphill overtaking lane if something big is coming the other way. A proposed development would change the start of the 3 lane section to incorporate a lane gain from the development and would push general traffic into what is currently lane 2. Does anyone have experience of such a layout on a busy A class road? I am particularly concerned regarding the possibility of head on conflicts between larger vehicles.
