Traffic Control at Worksites - Training and Accreditation
Traffic Control Devices for Works on Roads provides a national standard for the establishment of temporary traffic control arrangements at roadwork sites. Each jurisdiction has a different requirement for the training and accreditation of personnel…
The Use of Microsimulation Traffic Models for On-road Public Transport
This study looked into four on-road public transport (ORPT) priority treatments including: full bus lane (FBL), set back bus lane (SBBL), queue jump bus lane (QJBL) and no priority (NP). Microsimulation traffic modelling (MSTM) is a useful tool for…
Improving Cost Allocation by Road Type

This report improves the current approach to cost allocation, develops incremental pricing, and develops direct user charging. This report includes analysis of the relationship between road use and expenditure without considering road condition; and…

Preliminary Methodology for Estimating Cost Implications of Incremental Loads on Road Pavements
This report documents the development of a preliminary set of load-wear-cost (LWC) relationships as a basis for estimating the short-run marginal road wear cost (SRMC) and long-run marginal road wear cost (LRMC) for the main road types comprising…
Emerging Telecommunication Developments in WAN/LAN for Intelligent transport systems
This report provides the background information on analog and digital communication and a review on the WAN and LAN technologies currently used by road agencies. It also describes the future WAN/LAN technologies including their use within the new…
Upstream and Downstream Detection to Improve Congested Network Operation
Congestion in Australian cities has continued to get worse with significant increases in population and new car registrations. About a million new motor vehicles per year were registered in Australia in the years 2005-2007 before the global…
The Effect of Styrene Butadiene Styrene (SBS) Morphology on Field Performance and Test Results: An Initial Study

Styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) is the most commonly used polymer modified binder (PMB) type. It provides substantial performance enhancement in seals and asphalts, compared to unmodified bitumen. However, there have been field failures, and…

Preliminary Investigation of the Influence of Micro-cracking on Fatigue Life of Cemented Materials

Following the Austroads research reports prepared as part of TT1359: Cost-effective Structural Treatments for Rural Highways in June 2010 and TT1358 Strategic Review of Pavement Design, Austroads commissioned ARRB Group to undertake further research…

Investigating the Development of a Bridge Assessment Tool for Determining Access for High Productivity Freight Vehicles
This report deals with the first component of the bridge assessment tool and is a scoping study to determine whether there is sufficient data, and whether there exists suitable engineering models, to develop robust and nationally uniform technical…
Review of the Traffic Speed Deflectograph: Final Project Report
This project was established to enable ARRB and Austroads member authorities to work with the RTA to develop an independent national perspective on the applicability of the TSD to Australian conditions and practices. As the TSD is a newly developed…
