Austroads, under its Technology Program, has established an Evaluation and Planning Task Force. The Task Force consists of jurisdictional representatives from around Australia and New Zealand and are tasked to consider all aspects of economic planning and evaluationduring road or networkplanning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and for arranging research and commissioning. Where necessary the Task Force arranges changes to the Austroads Guide to Project Evaluation and / or in the preparation of specialist reports.
Planning and Evaluation publications:
The Austroads Guide to Project Evaluation assembles knowledge on project evaluation methods, parameters and tools into a readily available and accessible resource for planners and decision-makers. The parts offer guidance to practitioners seeking advice for 'beyond the standard benefit-cost analysis (BCA) or multi-criteria analysis (MCA)' evaluations, that is, project risk assessment, the national and regional impacts of projects, distributional (equity) effects of projects, and project post-evaluation analysis.
The Guide to Road Transport Planning provides a map of jurisdictional road transport planning processes and a best practice framework against which current road transport planning practice in Australasia may be assessed.
