BN2019 - Safety at Road Worksites Traffic Management Training

The purpose of this project is to provide guidance, supporting material and training which enhances the ability of road agencies and industry to meet WHS requirements and to lead to improved safety outcomes at road worksites. The project will also consider the development of registration schemes for individuals and companies operating in temporary traffic management at road worksites.


  • Project report documenting the project processes, all input information received recommending the preferred framework and details for each Unit of Competence. 

Closing date: Wednesday 13 June 2018, 5 pm EST


SAG6128 - Optimising Drug Driving Deterrence Regimes 

The purpose of this project is to identify and provide guidance to road and policing authorities on collective opportunities to optimise drug-testing regimes and associated drug-driving program activities, with a focus on improving the cost-efficiency and deterrent effectiveness.


  • Recommendations for jurisdictions to maximise efficiency and effectiveness of drug driving programs from a deterrence perspective.
  • This will be articulated in the final research report (report 4), which will also contain a summary of the outcomes of reports 2 and 3 developed through the project.

Closing date: Tuesday 29 May 2018, 5 pm EST

NEF6113 - Harmonisation of Measurement and Mass Assessment Procedures for Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) in Australasia

The purpose of this research project is to develop a consistent procedure for undertaking controlled measuring and weighing of Class 1 Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) to provide consistent data for the assessment of access to road networks for all jurisdictions in Australia and New Zealand.


  • a research paper summarising the current practice and requirements of each jurisdiction
  • a ‘controlled measuring and weighing’ procedure document that is practical and implementable
  • jurisdictional agreement on an implementation system (such as submission of certified data to NHVR or jurisdictional registration authority)
  • a webinar to disseminate project findings.

Closing date: Thursday 17 May 2018, 5 pm EST

NEG6114 - Improving the Reliability of Heavy Vehicle Parameters to support more Accurate Traffic Modelling in Australia / New Zealand

The purpose of this research project is to identify heavy vehicle parameters based on Austroads’ Automatic Vehicle Classification which can be used in traffic models for Australia and New Zealand. The study will also include analysis of larger heavy vehicle combinations that are commonly used in Australia. The parameters identified as part of this project study would be of interest/use to ANZ road agencies, providing input into the most commonly used traffic model assessment tools including SIDRA, LINSIG, VISSIM and AIMSUN.


  • research report Including: project outcome findings; tables which will specify parameters for the range of heavy vehicles commonly used in Australia that can be easily incorporated into traffic model software; and recommended updates to the Guide to Traffic Management
  • a dissemination webinar.

Closing date: Thursday 17 May 2018, 5 pm EST

NEG6120 - Building Transport Modelling Management Capability in Australasian Road and Transport Agencies

The purpose of this research project is to assist with building transport modelling management and practice capability across jurisdictions, this project aims to develop guidance to assist practitioners who manage transport modelling consultancies.


  • a research paper summarising the findings of the research and specific guidance that could be added to Guide to Traffic Management Part 3: Traffic Studies and Analysis – Section 7 Traffic Modelling
  • a training webinar to disseminate project findings.

Closing date: Thursday 17 May 2018, 5 pm EST

NEG6121 - Security Vulnerability of Existing Intelligent Transportation Systems and Electrical Devices

This project will review the range of systems managed by each State Road and Transport Agency and the range of ITS devices, consider current processes and controls in place, evaluate their effectiveness base on relevant risk level and propose suitable treatments to be implemented that should significantly reduce the likelihood of the risk occurring.


  • an internal report that assesses the vulnerability of the current devices and their integration with existing control systems (SCATS, STREAMS, etc) and to provide recommended processes and controls for each road and transport agency to securely and effectively operate their ITS systems, communication network and ITS devices.
  • an estimated implementation cost for each agency, based on the result and effectiveness of the existing controls and processes
  • a project dissemination webinar (Austroads members audience only).

Closing date: Thursday 17 May 2018, 5 pm EST

NTM6118 - Updating Austroads Pedestrian Planning and Design Guidance in Line with International Good Practice

This project will update Austroads guidance to ensure that Australian and New Zealand state and local governments have access to up-to-date pedestrian planning and design information that reflects national and international good practice.

It will provide road authorities with the tools to achieve a consistent approach to walking provision to reduce congestion, reduce pedestrian fatalities and injuries, and achieve more liveable and walkable towns and cities. It will also develop training to build both capability and capacity within road authorities to achieve better pedestrian operational and safety outcomes.


  • updated content for Austroads Guides
  • research report summarising project findings
  • six webinars delivered at the completion of the project to build capacity amongst practitioners (delivered once each and recorded for hosting on the Austroads website for general access by practitioners as a learning tool).

Closing date: Thursday 17 May 2018, 5 pm EST
