The Austroads Guide to Road Transport Planning develops a map of jurisdictional road transport planning processes with particular focus at the road route and link level; and a best practice framework against which current road transport planning practice in Australasia may be assessed.
This Guide examines:
- best practice principles (e.g. land use and transport planning integration, multi modal planning and public consultation processes) to achieve environmentally and socially sustainable transport solutions
- significant changes and developments both internationally and in Australasia towards strengthening the existing legal and institutional road transport planning framework.
This Guide will be superseded by the revised National Guidelines for Transport System Management when they are published in late 2014.
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.
