On 26 July 2017 a new Austroads report was published on traffic incident management (TIM). The report investigates both Australia-based and international techniques and proposes an Australasian management framework.
According to the report, ‘a literature review highlights the fact that TIM is not only a process of managing multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional response to road traffic incidents, but also a broader management program that involves an objective setup, stakeholder collaboration, option development and selection, implementation and performance evaluation’.
The authors of this report, Dr Aut Karndacharuk and Asif Hassan of the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB), will also be presenting a Q&A style webinar based on the report. Participants are said to gain an understanding of:
- the seven management principles underpinning the framework
- baseline and emerging TIM techniques
- current and contemporary incident management practices in Australasia
- the relevance of TIM practices and techniques to network operations planning and Safe System approach
The webinar will take place on Wednesday 29 August 2017 from 11:00 AM (AEST)
Registration for this webinar is free of charge, and can be done so here.
