NSW Dangerous Goods Movement Study

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) has commissioned the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) to undertake a dangerous goods (DG) movement study.

The purpose of this project is to understand where dangerous goods are being transported by road in NSW with a focus on the Sydney metropolitan region in order to identify and protect DG routes.

The study will focus on the transportation of bulk tanked Flammable Gas, Flammable Liquid and Chemicals with the use of telematics data to identify movements.

What we need from the DG transport industry?

Telematics data of DG transportation vehicles which transport bulk tanked Flammable Gas, Flammable Liquid and Chemicals.

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) will undertake the analysis in a de-identified and aggregated manner to ensure privacy. Example of preliminary analysis undertaken by TCA is contained in the downloadable PDF slide pack.

To participate in the study please sign the consent form included in the downloadable PDF flyer.

Example data record format with example data is contained in the downloadable excel spreadsheet.
