Purpose: The project seeks to recommend the best way forward for jurisdictions to avoid a future scenario where there is a need for users and license issuers to maintain a hard copy card license system for interstate travel and to duplicate a digital license.
STAGE 1 - Produce an Austroads Research Report which will identify and document the existing situation, the risks, the mitigation options and the recommended best course of action. This will be carried out through: a) the undertaking of initial desktop evaluation of end-to-end processes for licenses used by stakeholders; b) an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of solution options; c) production of a recommended option; d) confirmation (or otherwise) of the benefits of, and supporting arguments for, pursuing an option, and justifying proceeding to Stage 2.
Production of all necessary papers for the RLTF to review and approve in order to proceed to the next stage (Hold Point - RLTF Approval).
Develop the Project Brief for Stage 2 (depending on the R&L Task Force decision).

Purpose: The purpose of this project is to better understand the viability of using recycled plastics in asphalt and sprayed seals. The output of this project will be a literature review discussing the benefits and challenges of using recycled plastics in road pavements with guidance on future research and development.
Key deliverable is conducting a literature review and providing a report with the results of the literature review with a focus on:
a prioritised list for future research directions
if any, initial changes to immediately improve industry practices

Purpose: Stage 3 will establish a governance framework, develop high priority national architecture content and resources, undertake stakeholder engagement to support and encourage its use - particularly for C-ITS initiatives. It will also identify consideration for the further development of the NIA framework, including through related projects across other Austroads programs.
Stage 3 will be delivered through four (4) separate modules as follows:
Project Coordination and Stakeholder Consultation
Governance Framework and NIA Content Updates
Architecture Development (this module)
The tangible outputs will be provided to Module 1 including:
International literature review relevant to Scope of Work for Module 3
Content for webinars, Practitioner workshops and project reports
Candidate NIA content and models as determined by PTL in consultation with the PRG and other stakeholders (to be considered through application of NIA Governance Framework with PRG)
