Austroads has published the second edition of the Guide to Traffic Management Part 12: Traffic Impacts of Developments.
The Guide helps practitioners to identify and manage the impacts of land use developments on the road system, ensuring consistency in the assessment and treatment of traffic impacts, including addressing the needs of all road users and the effects on the broader community.
In this second edition the Guide has been updated throughout to include the Safe System approach and, where appropriate, restructured to prioritise safety.
Other changes include:
- identification of additional and updated sources of traffic generation rates
- additional comment on rural projects
- inclusion of logistics plans in the section on travel demand management and sustainable development
- a new section within road network planning to introduce the notion of link-and-place
- an update to the parking section to include electric vehicles
- an update to the description of vehicle types to note that general access vehicles may be up to 19 m long
- new content in the road user considerations section to include light rail, bus rapid transit systems, and network operating frameworks and plans
- restructuring the chapter on assessment of other impacts to prioritise road safety assessment.
This edition was prepared by Prof. Glenn Geers and Michael Levasseur, ARRB Group and project managed by Andrew McIntyre, Roads and Maritime Services NSW.
The hard copy can be purchased for $44 (+postage and handling) and the PDF for $35.20.
Austroads members can download PDF versions of the Guides for free. This includes all state and territory road agencies and local councils in Australia and New Zealand.
