Introducing: Road Transport Management Framework and Principles

by Australian Road Research Board on October 2, 2017

A recently published Austroads report on Road Transport Management (RTM) Framework and Principles, reviews local and international RTM practices to appraise the development of an RTM framework.

The report, as authored by Dr Aut Karndacharuk and Asif Hassan of ARRB, details the work undertaken to develop the framework including a literature review as well as consideration of emerging and disruptive transport technologies such as autonomous vehicles, as well as the demand for a better use of Intelligent Transport Systems.   

The document will equip practitioners with a holistic understanding of interrelated knowledge components in ‘planning, designing, operating and maintaining’ (i.e. managing) a road network or system.

‘This is crucial to the road transport industry because practitioners are often specialised and not always aware of the bigger picture’ Dr Karndacharuk said.

‘They could miss the opportunity to truly contribute to the ultimate goal of enabling ‘a safe, efficient, reliable and sustainable transport system’ Dr Karndacharuk goes onto say.

More information about the report can be found here

 

Following the release of the publication, Austroads have scheduled a Q&A style webinar with the authors, to give participants and understanding of:

  • 15 management principles and their connectivity within the RTM framework
  • relevance of the principles to integrated transport system planning and infrastructure asset development life cycle.

 The webinar will take place on Thursday 26 October 2017 at 12:00 PM AEDT
