This report presents the results of a study of the Australian road system undertaken by the Bureau of Transport Economics in response to a direction by the then Minister for Transport in May 1982. The terms of reference required that the Bureau examine changes in conditions and performance of the road system in recent years, trends in levels and patterns of funding, the economics of road investment and the probable impact of alternative future funding patterns and levels. A number of discrete investigations were undertaken in support of this study and are reported in the forthcoming publications: 1) information paper 10 - assessment of the Australian road system: operational characteristics; 2) Occasional Paper 60-Assessment of the Australian Road System: Travel Projections; 3) Occasional Paper 61-Assessment of the Australian Road System: Financing; 4) Occasional Paper 62-Assessment of the Australian Road System: Provision of Roads in Local Government Areas; 5) Occasional Paper 63-Assessment of the Australian Road System: Economic Assessment Model for Rural Arterial Roads. This report brings together the information from those documents and from other sources to provide a general assessment of the state and future of the road system. (TRRL)
