Network operations planning framework

The increase in the demand for transport services which is forecast to continue into the foreseeable future has placed greater focus on infrastructure and non-infrastructure solutions to meet that demand. Further, there is growing recognition of the importance of incorporating non-infrastructure solutions into the planning of new infrastructure in order to preserve productivity gains into the longer term through better management of the supply of and the demand for infrastructure. The purpose of this paper is to develop a high level reference document as a framework to assist network operations planning. The purpose of a framework for network operations is to assist network managers to monitor the performance of road networks, identify gaps in performance and service delivery, and determine which measures may best address those gaps most efficiently against the needs of a broad range of road users. The framework is designed to facilitate the attainment of objectives for both the road agency and road users, while recognising that the needs of road agencies and road users may often conflict. The framework also plays a key role in infrastructure planning by aiming to enhance the longer term efficiency with which we use our road infrastructure. (a)
