Austroads has published a research report to reduce the impacts of heavy vehicles on bridge infrastructure while maintaining freight productivity, in support of reforms proposed by Transport Ministers across Australia in 2018. The Ministers proposed reforming the Australian Performance-Based Standards (PBS) scheme, and the National Transport Commission developed policy documents to support the proposal.
Austroads has published a research report demonstrating that a probability-based bridge assessment (PBBA) framework can be used to assess the safety of heavy vehicle freight access to problematic bridges.
