ATAP (Australian Transport Assessment and Planning)

The Australian Transport Assessment and Planning (ATAP) Guidelines outline best practice for transport planning and assessment in Australia. They have replaced the previous National Guidelines for Transport System Management and Austroads’ Guide to Project Evaluation and Guide to Road Transport Planning.


The Guidelines are structured around a transport assessment and planning framework. The framework is an activity and decision-support system, with a logical, multi-step approach aimed at achieving the high-level goals and transport system objectives of a jurisdiction.
