NEF2096 Research Report on Local Roads and High Productivity Freight Vehicles Access

The purpose of this project is to investigate the barriers to HPFV access on local roads. It will include the identification of options and provide a discussion on the assessment of the options in addressing the barriers. A discussion on how the options can complement existing tools and guidelines, such as the PBS Route Assessment Tool (RAT), is required.

Deliverables: Research Report.

SSP6038 Research Report - Key Interventions to Reduce Road Trauma – Forecasting Potential Road Safety Gains

Through consultation with each jurisdiction, this project will identify a set of high value/high impact safety interventions together with their likely trauma reduction impacts at different investment levels. The project will quantify (at a macro level) the impact of these interventions based on each jurisdiction’s current road safety plans/strategies to determine a high-level estimate of road trauma levels in Australia and New Zealand by 2020. With an estimate of each jurisdiction’s trauma reductions, the project will encourage jurisdictions and the Commonwealth to lift their ambition and adopt a program of measures with greater trauma reduction.


  • an agreed set of safety initiatives together with estimates of their impact to take to the jurisdictions and the Commonwealth (documented)
  • a document summarising the suites of initiatives currently planned by each jurisdiction and the Commonwealth and the expected trauma levels in 2020
  • a document summarising the suites of proposed initiatives agreed within each jurisdiction and the Commonwealth provided to the Steering Committee
  • final report.

RS1854 Providing Good Practice Model Design Principles for Better Management of End-of-Life Vehicles and Final Report

The purpose of this project is to develop an appropriate ‘conceptual set’ of vehicle registration requirements/provisions to support the effective management of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) to:

  • enhance the integrity and accuracy of the national vehicle register; and
  • mitigate the current related detrimental impacts in respect of damage to the environment and vehicle crime.

The project is a joint initiative of Austroads and the National Motor Vehicle Theft Reduction Council.

Deliverables include: 

  • a set of good practice model design principles that individual jurisdictions can consider as local demand for improved ELV management and conditions dictate; and
  • a draft final report on the process undertaken in developing the model principles, keys issues identified in consultations and general levels of support for reform of ELV management practices.

Closing date: Friday 27 January 2017, 05:00 PM Eastern Standard Time
