Joint development of road technology in the global village

What are the benefits of a road construction and maintenance engineer from Eastern Victoria developing maintenance practices for Bhutan in the Himalayan region? How successfully can an Australian traffic systems expert, who can speak fluent Mandarin, train staff of the Dublin Corporation in Ireland in the operation of a newly installed dynamic traffic signal system? How does a Victorian-trained team go about advising on vehicle registration and safety standards for Bangladesh? These and many other such questions have been answered by employees of Vic Roads, the Roads Corporation of Victoria, Australia. Vic Roads (and its predecessor organisations) has participated in a range of overseas projects in partnership with other public and private enterprises during the past few years. This paper presents some observations and learnings derived from this participation which may be of relevance to others wishing to become involved in international road systems and road traffic management projects.
