Managing environmental impacts arising from trucks using metropolitan road links

The total freight task in Australia is expected to increase significantly over the next 15 years, especially in urban areas. This substantial growth in truck traffic, together with increasing congestion in large urban centres, could necessitate more night time and week-end truck operations. Increased night time truck movements invariably increase adverse environmental and amenity impacts. This paper reviews measures that are suitable for managing the access of trucks and their environmental impacts and proposes an impact management framework to match traffic and access management measures to different road classes and vehicle types, and for different time periods of a day.
