Developing road-based intelligent transport system (ITS) deployment guidelines for Queensland

This project involves developing ITS deployment guidelines for Main Roads. The deployment guidelines indicate a desired level of ITS to aid planning and indicate possible intervention levels. To determine the desired level of ITS, each road section is classified according to parameters such as AADT, percentage heavy vehicles and overloaded vehicles, crash cost, number of incidents, incident duration and percentage time volume-capacity ratio is greater than 0.85. The guidelines then indicate a desired level of ITS for each road type and classification. Once the desired level is determined, the department will be able to undertake a gap or deficiency analysis by measuring the existing ITS deployment and comparing it to the desired level of ITS deployment set out in the guidelines.
