Copy the code below and paste it in place of the code in the stylesheet in order to make these changes affect all your pages.

{% color "melody" color="#414042", export_to_template_context=True %} /* change your site's color here */

{% color "harmony" color="#209fd9", export_to_template_context=True %} /* change your site's secondary color here */

{% set topHeaderColor = "#209fd9" %} /* This color is solely used on the top bar of the website. */

{% set baseFontFamily = "Open Sans" %} /* Add the font family you wish to use. You may need to import it above. */

{% set headerFontFamily = "Open Sans" %} /* This affects only headers on the site. Add the font family you wish to use. You may need to import it above. */

{% set textColor = "#565656" %} /* This sets the universal color of dark text on the site */

{% set pageCenter = "1100px" %} /* This sets the width of the website */

{% set headerType = "fixed" %} /* To make this a fixed header, change the value to "fixed" - otherwise, set it to "static" */

{% set lightGreyColor = "#f7f7f7" %} /* This affects all grey background sections */

{% set baseFontWeight = "normal" %} /* More than likely, you will use one of these values (higher = bolder): 300, 400, 700, 900 */

{% set headerFontWeight = "normal" %} /* For Headers; More than likely, you will use one of these values (higher = bolder): 300, 400, 700, 900 */

{% set buttonRadius = '40px' %} /* "0" for square edges, "10px" for rounded edges, "40px" for pill shape; This will change all buttons */

Creating knowledge for tomorrow's transport challenges and solutions for today. 

Bringing Global Innovation Home

The global transport sector is already building smart connected roads that can communicate with vehicles and drivers about safety hazards while generating clean power to fuel our cities. At ARRB we are bringing that practical knowledge to Australia and New Zealand as we prepare for a connected future. 

Future Transport 

Automated vehicles are becoming an integral part of the future transport landscape.

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) plays a significant research role in the higher level design, research methodology, human and safety factors, working in collaboration with other industry partners to deliver next-generation mobility solutions in Australia and New Zealand.

ARRB is a lead partner in the Australian and New Zealand Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI), which aims to accelerate safe and successful introduction of driverless vehicles onto Australian and New Zealand roads.


Road Safety 

ARRB applies a holistic view of the road transport system including the interactions among roads and roadsides, travel speeds, vehicles and road users. The Safe Systems approach recognises that people will always make mistakes and may have road crashes—but the system should be forgiving and those crashes should not result in death or serious injury.

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) is a recognised leader in developing the Safe System vision for road transport. ARRB works together with road agencies to implement the vision’s aim of no death and serious injury on Australian and New Zealand road networks.


The Accelerated Loading Facility (ALF) is used to simulate heavy vehicle trafficking on pavement structures under controlled conditions.

The ALF allows pavements to be tested and for their performance to be evaluated in a very short time compared with test sites under normal traffic.

The original ALF was developed in Australia by the Roads and Traffic Authority of New South Wales. A number of long-term pavement performance (LTPP) studies have verified ALF results against pavement performance under real traffic and environmental conditions. The Australian ALF has been used for more than 250 experiments over 25 years, applying over 32 million load passes and simulating well over 300 million Equivalent Standard Axle loads.


The Parking team is experienced in all facets of car park management and operations, including parking strategy, policy, planning, pedestrian and road safety, audits, feasibility studies, technology, signage systems and car park safety assessments. 

We provide independent and unbiased advice as we do not operate parking facilities or supply equipment.



ARRB provides a range of services to address the management of structural infrastructure assets including development, rehabilitation, maintenance, and analysis modules for bridge management systems. 

Road Management

Now that pavement strength data is collected at traffic speed, cracks detected automatically and roadside and roadway video collected routinely, the world of pavement and asset management is no longer a constraint. Opportunities exist due to the volume of data – and other recent and emerging technologies – for road users, owners, designers, constructors, managers and public sector treasuries, let us explore further solutions to not just routine maintenance planning and delivery, but also on building and retrofitting resilience into transport infrastructure.

The Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) is constantly looking at how the next generation of pavements, surfacings and structures are to embrace a digitally connected and motivated world.


National Research capabilities

The Australian Road Research Board's (ARRB) embedded knowledge from more than 50 years of research and as a provider of world class research outcomes for its Members allows the organisation to bring together diverse perspectives and expertise to both identify emerging issues and provide timely advice and options for ways forward.

While expertise in core technical areas is essential, ARRB’s strength is in bringing together various project collaborators on a national and international scale to generate the multidisciplinary-based outcomes needed for implementation by member agencies.
