Road Design Task Force & Projects

Road Design Task Force

The Road Design Task Force has representatives from Australian and New Zealand road agencies, the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA), Consult Australia and the ARRB Group. 

Road design projects undertaken by road agencies range from minor improvements to small sections of existing roads, to restoration projects that improve road cross-sections while retaining existing alignments, to major greenfield design of arterial roads as part of significant regional or inter-regional development. At one extreme, the work may have no significant environmental or social impacts and involve minimal interaction with other agencies. At the other, the road authority may be but one player in a broad whole-of-government activity.

The Task Force considers all aspects of road design and is responsible for maintaining the Austroads Guide to Road Design and preparing specialist reports.
