National guidelines for transport system management in Australia: 5. background material

This document presents background material to the National Guidelines for Transport System Management in Australia (2nd edition) endorsed by the Australian Transport Council (ATC) in November 2006. It is part of a series of five documents that comprise the Guidelines. The other documents cover an introduction, a detailed framework for undertaking strategic transport planning and development, detailed information on the appraisal of initiatives and an analytical approach for urban transport proposals. The Guidelines support transport decision-making and serve as a national standard for planning and developing transport systems. They are a key component of processes to develop and/or appraise transport proposals that are submitted for government funding. The Guidelines have been endorsed by all Australian jurisdictions. They were developed collaboratively over several years by representatives from all levels of government in Australia through the Standing Committee on Transport (SCOT), in consultation with SCOT modal groups (Austroads, Australian Passenger Transport Group, SCOT Rail Group). This is the second edition of the Guidelines. The revision has focused on making the material more cohesive, accessible and user-friendly, while maintaining rigour. These improvements will help to facilitate the widespread adoption of the Guidelines that has been specified by COAG.
