Guide to road design part 2: design considerations

Guide to Road Design Part 2 provides a detailed description of the three critical aspects of road design: the design objectives that apply to a road design project; context-sensitive design; and the factors that influence the road design, including road design in the context of the Safe System philosophy. Guidance is provided to practitioners on the range of influences, information, data, criteria and other considerations that may have to be assessed in developing a road project. The guide also describes the basis of the guidelines and the context in which they should be applied. It also provides links to other Austroads Guides and the resources that give further guidance on design inputs.
