Course overview

Good road design will achieve operational efficiency, be safe and cost-effective, be aesthetically pleasing, and minimise the environmental impact. The role of the road designer is to produce the most appropriate design that achieves the specified functionality using the design inputs from all relevant disciplines.

The purpose of this two-day workshop is to provide an understanding of the fundamentals of geometric road design. This includes considerations of, the Safe System approach to providing Safe Roads for all road users. Designing within the context of the site and application of the normal and extended design domains are also discussed.

The design must take into account all inputs from stakeholders and road users. This workshop will cover these principles, providing delegates will a clear understanding of the key geometric design requirements to achieve a suitable road design. The course will navigate participants through the Austroads Guide to Road Design Part 3: Geometric Design 2021, and will also touch on other parts, including Part 6: Roadside Design and Part 6A: Paths for Walking and Cycling.

The presenters’ expertise in safety in design concepts will also incorporate design considerations and decision-making processes using AusRAP and iRAP safety

  • Target Audience

Course Content

  • Develop an understanding of the fundamentals of geometric road design.
  • Explanation of the underlying principles of key geometric design attributes, how these are coordinated and how these influence safety.
  • Hands on application of the course material through exercises.
  • Consideration of all road user groups including vulnerable road users and heavy vehicles.
  • Group activities to identify safety risks in geometric designs, quantify the crash risk by road user and crash type and modify the design to reduce crash risk.
  • Course mainly refers to Austroads (2021) Guide to Road Design Part 3: Geometric Design.

Target Audience

This workshop caters for graduate designers seeking an understanding of geometric road design or experienced road designers who are seeking to reinvigorate their knowledge and develop a holistic approach to geometric design. As this course is based on fundamentals any of the following will also gain a benefit, even if not directly undertaking geometric
design:

  • Project and program managers/directors
  • Consulting, State or Local government road
