Local road expenditure data is collected and reported by the Australia Bureau of Statistics and used by the National Transport Commission (NTC) in its heavy vehicle charging methodology. This project is to improve local road expenditure data to provide additional detail for the NTC and enhance the National Local Road Data System. This is done by conducting a supplementary survey of a sample of representatives councils to obtain greater detail on the expenditure categories to allow disaggregation of the National Local Road Data System dataset into the detail required for the National Transport Commission’s vehicle charging methodology. This document reports on the findings of two supplementary surveys through two series of 17 regional workshops held throughout Australia in 2007 and 2008. The project has successfully developed the methodology for disaggregation of the National Local Road Data System into the National Transport Commission 2007 Determination Road Construction and Maintenance Expenditure data categories.
