Variations exist in the methods and practices used by each of the authorities for the assessment of route access, yet increasing vehicle productivity without compromising safety underlie all of their heavy vehicle route access assessment procedures. This report identifies the current practices in heavy vehicle route access assessment in each of the state road authorities, and offers a draft performance template of relevant performance measures suitable for assisting jurisdictions in the task of determining route access. Rather than presenting a prescriptive guide for the assessment of routes for multi-combination vehicle route access, this report presents a list of issues that need to be considered in route assessment in the various operational regions - namely urban, rural and remote areas.
