Austroads Learning to Drive
The Austroads Learning to Drive handbook is part of a toolkit designed to improve driver licensing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders living in remote communities.
Bridge Management Using Performance Models

Performance modelling is an asset management tool used to quantify or qualify the performance of a bridge within the context of the overall bridge network. Performance modelling techniques include the use of performance indicators and deterioration…

A Generic Framework for the Management of Road Related Assets
This report provides a generic framework for the management of road-related assets. In recent times, road agencies have made a shift from being road builders to road managers. This change has ensured that road agencies need to accept responsibility…
Asset management Strategy for Electrical Assets
Failures of traffic signals can lead to crashes and loss of productivity. As the road network gets more congested, the sustained operation of traffic signals becomes even more critical. The effective management of traffic signal assets therefore…
National Cycling Strategy 2011-16: Implementation Report 2012
In November 2013 the Australian Bicycle Council published a report that outlines the progress made on the National Cycling Strategy in 2012.
Improving the Performance of Safe System Infrastructure: Stage 1 Interim Report

This report summarises the findings from the first year of a three-year study which reviews the safety performance of road infrastructure elements identified as Safe System solutions. The first stage sought to identify these solutions and to…

Probabilistic Road Deterioration Model Development

The work documented in this report demonstrates the use of existing Austroads deterministic road deterioration (RD) models in a probabilistic approach to estimate the possible predictions for the dependent variables of these models. This approach…

Analytical Study of Performance Models for Unbound Granular Pavements

This report presents an analytical and parametric study to assess the relevance of rutting performance models for unbound granular pavements.

The rutting performance relationship used in the Austroads Guide to Pavement Technology Part 2 – Pavement…

Effects of Polymer Segregation in Polymer Modified Binders on Field Performance

This study investigated whether the segregation propensity of a polymer modified binder (PMB) during hot storage affects its performance on the road.

The Australian PMB specification currently includes a segregation test which determines whether the…

PMB Sprayed Seal Trials: 12 Month Summary Report

This report details of the performance of polymer modified binder (PMB) trial sites in South Australia and New South Wales after 12 months service life. It includes related information such as the seal designs, binder testing in the laboratory, site…
