Australasia (which consists of Australia and New Zealand) has a vast road network and limited resources with which to manage and improve the network. Austroads is playing a significant role in setting the agenda for road infrastructure research within Australasia and also the co-ordination of research effort. This paper briefly describes the role being carried out by Austroads in this regard and the mechanisms used to achieve a co-ordinated national research effort. Brief descriptions of some of the research work currently being carried out as well as the interaction between Austroads and the DIVINE project are also given. (a) For the covering entry of this Conference, see IRRD abstract no. 868186.
