Publication no: AGRD02-15 Pages: 48
Published: 23 September 2015
Guide to Road Design Part 2 provides a detailed description of the three critical aspects of road design: the design objectives that apply to a road design project; context-sensitive design; and the factors that influence the road design, including road design in the context of the Safe System philosophy.
Guidance is provided to practitioners on the range of influences, information, data, criteria and other considerations that may have to be assessed in developing a road project. The Guide also describes the basis of the guidelines and the context in which they should be applied. It also provides links to other Austroads Guides and the resources that give further guidance on design inputs.
Changes contained in this second edition of the Guide include updates that discuss how the Safe System approach can be incorporated into the road design process. Updates to references and cross-references to other Austroads Guides have also been made, along with changes to the commentaries section.
