Impact of Lower Speed Limits for Road Safety on Network Operations

This project achieved the objective of consolidating the available research on the impacts of lower speed limits on network operations. It extended this knowledge to bridge an identified knowledge gap regarding urban arterial roads by modelling the…

Guidelines for Selecting Techniques for the Modelling of Network Operations
The evaluation of road network operation schemes often requires the use of modelling to forecast the performance of proposals. There is a variety of modelling techniques available, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Certain modelling…
Estimating Road Network Congestion and Associated Costs
The objective of Austroads Project NS1203 (Estimating Road Network Congestion and Associated Costs) is to develop a procedure to calculate delay and associated congestion costs by making use of directly measurable traffic data. Network performance…
Network Operations Planning Framework
The increase in the demand for transport services which is forecast to continue into the foreseeable future has placed greater focus on infrastructure and non-infrastructure solutions to meet that demand. Further, there is growing recognition of the…
Tools that Impact Network Performance: Measurement and Evaluation Tools
This report reviews the tools that monitor, measure and evaluate the performance of the road network, for both arterials and freeways. The interest in measurement and evaluation tools for the overall network is mainly driven by the need to operate…
Tools that Impact Network Performance: Summary Report
This Austroads project was initiated to enable road authorities to develop a better understanding of how various traffic management tools and proposed operational changes to the road network affected the performance of the entire road network, with…
Tools that Impact Network Performance: Integrated Tools
Integrated tools can be a toolbox of technologies and procedures which combine both hard engineering methods such as the use of shoulders and lane access controls as well as dynamic traffic management tools such as ramp meters, incident detection,…
Tools that Impact Network Performance: Road Space Allocation Tools
The objective of this report is to identify and document the findings, experiences and issues associated with the application of various road space allocation tools available to road managers. These tools are used to maximise the effectiveness of…
Tools that Impact Network Performance: Dynamic Traffic Management Tools
The objective of this report was to identify and document the findings, experiences and issues associated with the application of various dynamic traffic control systems available to road managers. The tools are used to maximise the effectiveness of…
Understanding Network Performance Information Provided to Road Users
The objective of this study was to identify performance information that are understood and would be used by all road users to make informed road transport decisions and that would assist road managers' in decision making in relation to the…
