Guide to traffic management: part 6: intersections, interchanges and crossings

The Austroads Guide to Traffic Management has 13 parts. Part 6 Intersections, Interchanges and Crossings is concerned with traffic management at all types of intersections where the various road users must join or cross another stream of traffic. It focuses on traffic management issues and treatments related to intersections, interchanges and crossings but does not provide dimensions or other details for the design of treatments as these are provided in the Austroads Guide to Road Design, Part 4. Traffic management at intersections may be influenced by the approaches to them, and road sections between intersections. Guidance on traffic management on road sections is provided in the Austroads Guide to Traffic Management Part 5 Road Management. Part 6 presents detailed information and guidelines relating to the factors that need to be considered in the selection of an appropriate type of intersection and in the functional design of intersections. It describes the appropriate use and design of the various intersection types and traffic management techniques that are applied to meet traffic management objectives, and provide efficient and safe intersections. Part 6 considers the needs of all road users including pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, heavy vehicles and public transport. (a)
