Parking guidelines updated

Austroads has published the second edition of the Guide to Traffic Management Part 11: Parking.

The Guide is concerned with the parking management process. It presents guidelines for determining the demand for and supply of parking. It includes the implementation of on-street and off-street parking for all road users including parking controls in urban centres, parking on rural roads and at park-and-ride facilities. Electronic parking guidance systems and signs are also described.

This second edition the Guide has additional information about shared space, risk, safety and best practice in permit parking management. Bicycle parking provision rates have been updated. New sections have been included covering Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), Parking Control and Payment Technologies, hybrid vehicles and self-driving vehicles.

This edition was prepared by Larry Schneider and Michael Moses, ARRB Group and project managed by Robyn Hawkins, Transport Canberra and City Services Directorate ACT .

The hard copy can be purchased for $121 (+postage and handling) and the PDF for $96.80.
