STAGE DEVELOPMENT OF TRAFFIC CAPACITY IMPROVEMENTS TO MAJOR RURAL ROADS IN VICTORIA
A problem on the major rural arterial road links in Victoria is one of providing traffic capacity. In order to achieve maximum community benefit from investment in road facilities on these links it is particularly important that economically sound decisions be taken regarding timing of carriageway duplication, staged conversion to freeway standard facilities, and the number and location of interchanges, grade separations and town by-passes. This paper describes some recent Victorian investigations which have provided quantitative information to assist in making these important decisions (a). (TRRL)
