PBS network classification guidelines for local government: performance based standards for undertaking local government route assessment and network classification

This document defines guidelines for the consistent classification of the Performance Based Standards (PBS) network at the local government level. In 2007, the National Transport Commission (NTC) published national guidelines that were targeted towards state road authorities and other major road asset owners for permitting access to heavy vehicles operating under the PBS scheme. Although some of these guidelines can be applied directly to the local road network, it has been recognised that some gaps exist and some guidelines are not completely suited. These guidelines have been developed to address these points and differ from the national guidelines in three main areas: 1. Local government road networks can include infrastructure or events not likely present on state roads, e.g. children’s crossings. 2. The local government road network environment can be different from state road networks, and therefore can require different considerations for classification. 3. Local governments often lack the resources and capability to collect network data to the same extent as a state road authority, therefore the information required to undertake classification must be able to accommodate this.
