Studies showing the effectiveness of using coloured antiskid surfacing in reducing collisions

We are currently reviewing our policies around the provision of coloured road surfaces, and part of that is the debate over the use of coloured antiskid within collision reduction schemes, for example red surfacing within central hatching. I am aware of the mention of the collision reduction benefits of such surfacing within DMRB Vol 6 TA 81/99, but wondered if anyone was aware of any more studies to support, or not such use?
