Clearer line markings mean safer roads.
Line markings are an essential part of our road safety tool kit and need to be visible at all hours of the day to improve the safety of all road users.
Their condition can significantly impact the ability of drivers and vehicles fitted with lane keeping systems to clearly identify their lane position. And the looming arrival of driverless vehicles will make line markings even more crucial.
In just two to three years, typical line marking night-time visibility (or retro-reflectivity) can reduce to below the required performance levels - even quicker if the road has high traffic volumes and a high percentage of heavy vehicles.
ARRB’s iLINE can help. It's the accurate, cost-efficient and safe way of managing your line markings.
iLINE is a state-of-the-art vehicle operated by ARRB's experts that allows for the quick and inexpensive collection of high volumes of line marking conditions on your road network - at normal road speed, with no road closures.
iLINE allows road managers to collect line marking condition data across their network, quickly identifying roads or sections of roads that are below standard and need to be re-marked.
Clients say it provides a significant benefit-cost ratio, especially when used in conjunction with ARRB's survey vehicles that collect roughness, rutting, cracking and texture data.

Webinar: What is the iLINE?
ARRB recently held an online webinar where our experts explained the role of line markings and presented our state-of-the-art retro-reflectivity vehicle, the iLINE. An overview was given of how the iLINE can be used to develop a targeted network re-marking program that will allow for re-marking cost savings while also reducing network crash risk.
