Webinar: Developing the Data to Support Heavy Vehicle Road Reforms
This webinar, presented on 14 March 2019, provides an update on the Austroads’ project to develop the data to support the Heavy Vehicle Road Reforms.
Webinar: Level of Service Requirements for Freight on Rural Roads and Refinement of Heavy Vehicle Roughness Band Index
This webinar, presented on 31 January 2019, provides an overview of Austroads' study that proposes a ride quality index of roads for heavy vehicles, a heavy vehicle equivalent of the International Roughness Index (IRI) for cars.
Level of Service Requirements for Freight on Rural Roads and Refinement of Heavy Vehicle Roughness Band Index
Following on from previous work, the purpose of this project was to complete an investigation of subjective ratings of ride quality of A, B and C roads in Victoria while driving a passenger car and a range of heavy vehicles.
Guide to Asset Management Processes Part 4: Customer Needs and Expectations and Levels of Service
Part 4 of the Guide to Asset Management provides guidance to asset management planners responsible for managing consultation processes with customers, including industry stakeholders, road users and the community.
Asset management Strategy for Road-related Assets (Safety Infrastructure)
The provision and maintenance of safety infrastructure such as safety barriers and safety fences enhances roadside safety and vehicle movement and reduces the risk of road crashes and their severity. This report provides guidance for the management…
Levels of Service for Non-Freight Road Users

This report documents the results of an Austroads project to identify the asset management needs and level of service (LOS) requirements of future non-freight road users.

Preliminary work documented the relationship of this project to other Austroads…

Defining Asset Management Level of Service Requirements for Freight on Rural Arterial Roads

This report documents the outcomes of surveys of road freight drivers, operators and road infrastructure managers to better understand their asset management level of service (LOS) requirements.

The survey responses identified three primary road…

Incorporating Uncertainty in Pavement Management System (PMS) Modelling: Phase 1

This proof of concept study used the data condensation technology of stochastic information packets (SIPs) in MS Excel to allow complete storage of all collected data. This approach, when connected to a pavement management system (PMS), was able to…

Level of Service Metrics (for Network Operations Planning)
This report documents a level of service (LOS) framework for network operations from the perspectives of different road users.
Heavy Vehicle Roughness Band Index: An Alternative Trigger for Pavement Rehabilitation
This report has developed a new index, the Heavy Vehicle Roughness Band Index (HVRBI), as a measure of ride quality for heavy vehicles. The HVRBI is intended for use by road asset managers as a trigger to initiate pavement intervention works…
