National Approach to Traffic Control at Work Sites
The adoption of a consistent approach to traffic control at work sites potentially has significant benefits to road users, road authorities and road contractors. A review of the legislation and traffic control at work sites documentation for each…
Demand for B-triple and Quad-axle B-double Network Decoupling Points
This study investigated decoupling points for large multi-trailer combination vehicles which cannot complete end-to-end journeys. The need for de-coupling is linked to the boundaries of routes/ areas for which limited access is allowed for larger…
Review of Relationship to Predict Subgrade Modulus from CBR (California Bearing Ratio)

The Austroads Guide to the Structural Design of Road Pavements: Pavement Design (now the Guide to Pavement Technology: Part 2 – Pavement Structural Design) has been used throughout Australia for over 20 years. Progressive development of the Guide is…

Guide to Pavement Technology Part 4I: Earthworks Materials
Part 4I: Earthworks Materials provides advice on the general requirements for earthworks materials and the characteristics of material types used in a range of specific applications. The advice has been generally developed from the approaches…

A road trial was established at Gisborne on the Calder Highway. The aim of the trial was to review the performance of sprayed seals constructed from a number of binder types. Class 170 is typically used in Victoria for sprayed seals and a section…
Measuring Heavy Vehicle Wheel Loads Dynamically
To improve the understanding of the nature of dynamic wheel loads and associated pavement damage, Austroads commissioned ARRB Group to research heavy vehicle dynamic wheel loads through the development and implementation of a measurement system as a…
Component Costs in Transport Projects to Ensure the Appropriate Valuing of Safety Effects
Austroads commissioned ARRB to consider the current costing procedures used in determining the relative cost share of safety in project evaluation. Australia currently uses a human capital approach to the valuation of crash costs, while many other…
First National Survey of Australian Bitumens
Little data is available to allow trends in bitumen properties to be determined or to compare the properties of bitumens used in different jurisdictions. Such information will become important as more imported, non-traditional bitumens are used in…
Guidelines for Assessing Heavy Vehicle Access to Local Roads
Freight vehicles are becoming more productive in order to meet these demands. All of these changes have impacts on the amount of travel and the loads carried by trucks on roads. This in turn leads to a range of environmental, safety, cost and…
