Guide to road transport planning

The Austroads Guide to Road Transport Planning develops a map of jurisdictional road transport planning processes with particular focus at the road route and link level; and a best practice framework against which current road transport planning practice in Australasia may be assessed. Consultation with relevant government authorities (including surveys of all government agencies with a stake in road transport planning), and a review of relevant literature from Australia and overseas underpin the development of this Guide. Transport planning approaches and processes for roads vary widely across jurisdictions within countries as well as across countries and is probably more of an art than a science. This Guide discusses elements of good transport planning, current trends in transport planning, and best-practice principles (e.g. land-use and transport planning integration, multi-modal planning and public consultation processes) required to achieve environmentally and socially sustainable transport solutions. It examines significant recent changes and a number of developments both internationally and in Australasia towards strengthening the existing legal and institutional road transport planning framework.
