Movement & Place Framework

The aim of this course is to assess network challenges, its competing demands and helps practitioners and decision makers to consider movement, place, safety and environmental outcomes when making decisions on our transport network. These decisions will translate high level strategies and plans into projects and operations.

The strategic level modules focus on:
Module 1 – Network Classification and assigning a future vision
Module 2 – Performance Assessment and using classifications to weight performance shortfalls.

The project level modules focus on:
Module 3 – Design Guides for the development of solutions
Module 4 – Options Assessment framework for project impact evaluation.

Pedestrians & Cyclists – Thinking, Planning and Designing

This course aims to help managers, planners, practitioners, engineers and other interested professionals improve outcomes for pedestrians and cyclists.

The main objectives of the course are to:

  • Inform of the latest policies, decision-making frameworks and methodologies
  • Provide detailed advice on planning and design practices for pedestrians and cyclists
  • Advise on systemic actions to further include pedestrians and cyclists in our transport system

There are three options to take the course – participants could attend:

  • Day 1 to 3
  • Day 1 Only
  • Day 2 & 3 Only

DAY 1:
Participants will be introduced to the important role of walking and cycling in our transport system. They will be informed of foundational policy, decision-making frameworks and methodology for including pedestrians and cyclists.

DAY 2:
Participants will learn about planning tools and practices for pedestrians and cyclists and will visit a site to discuss practicalities of walking and cycling planning. Pedestrian and cyclist facilities are discussed.

DAY 3:
Following Day 2 exercises, detailed design practices for pedestrians and cyclists at intersections and midblocks are discussed. An assignment is presented to help participants practice their learnings during the course.

Road Safety Engineering & Road Safety Audit

The aim of this course is to understand road safety engineering best practice, learn how to analyse crash data and undertake crash investigations, develop solutions for high risk locations, and how to manage roadside hazards (days 1 – 3).

The course will cover:

  • Safe system approach to road safety
  • Crash reporting
  • Assessment of road safety projects
  • Treatment of high-risk locations
  • Crash site investigations
  • Roadside hazard management
  • Intelligent transport systems (ITS)

The aim of the road safety audit course (days 4 - 5) is to introduce and explain the road safety audit process.  The course includes the updated Austroads Guide to Road Safety Part 6 & 6A.

The course will cover:

  • What are road safety audits and how do they differ from safe system assessments?
  • Stages of road safety audits
  • Design stage road safety audits
  • Legal issues with road safety audits
  • Consideration of vulnerable road users - pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists
  • Traffic management road safety audits
  • Preparation and presentation of a road safety audit report
  • Road safety auditor accreditation and registration
