Webinar: Improving the Reliability of Heavy Vehicle Parameters to Support More Accurate Traffic Modelling in Australia and New Zealand
This webinar, presented on 9 December 2019, provides an overview of ways to more accurately model heavy vehicle movements during interrupted traffic flows in Australia and New Zealand.
Improving the Reliability of Heavy Vehicle Parameters to Support More Accurate Traffic Modelling in Australia and New Zealand
This report explores heavy vehicle parameters which can be used to improve the accuracy of traffic modelling in Australia and New Zealand. The focus was on relevant parameters used in SIDRA, LINSIG, AIMSUN and VISSIM to model heavy vehicle movements…
Webinar: Key Freight Routes – Heavy Vehicle Usage Data Project
This webinar, presented on 3 October 2019, provides an overview of an Austroads project that analysed telematics data to explore how heavy vehicles use Key Freight Routes.
Key Freight Routes – Heavy Vehicle Usage Data Project
This report provides a picture of how a range of heavy vehicles use roads designated as Key Freight Routes. The project collected telematics data from heavy vehicles and found that telematics can provide a wide range of statistics that can help…
Guidelines for the Provision of Heavy Vehicle Rest Area Facilities (Ed 1.1)
Heavy vehicle rest areas (HVRAs) are provided to help heavy vehicle drivers manage fatigue and comply with driving hours regulation. To aid road managers in this task, Austroads has produced  Guidelines for the Provision of Heavy Vehicle Rest…
Bridge Assessment: A comparison of approaches by bridge engineers and the Performance Based Standards Scheme
This document describes the discrepancy between the tiers of bridge assessment documented in the Heavy Vehicle National Law’s Performance Based Standards (PBS) scheme and the tiers of assessment Austroads bridge engineers adopt when conducting…
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: Guidelines for the Provision of Heavy Vehicle Rest Area Facilities
This webinar, presented on 14 February 2019, provides an overview of the Austroads Guidelines for the Provision of Heavy Vehicle Rest Area Facilities.
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.
