Publication no: AGTM05-17 Pages: 151
Published: 28 July 2017
Guide to Traffic Management Part 5: Road Management is concerned with traffic management on sections of road between major intersections. It focuses on traffic management issues and treatments related to various situations but does not provide dimensions or other details for the design of treatments as these are provided in the Guide to Road Design. Guidance on traffic management at intersections is provided in the Guide to Traffic Management Part 6: Intersections, Interchanges and Crossings.
Part 5 presents detailed information and guidelines relating to the factors that need to be considered in applying traffic management techniques and treatments to road types that include motorways and expressways, urban arterial roads, urban local roads, rural highways and rural local roads. It considers the needs of all road users including pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists, heavy vehicles and public transport. It provides the guidance under the four key areas of access management, road space requirements for general traffic use, allocation of road space between road users, lane management and speed limits.
This third edition updates previous Austroads guidance on road management by presenting the latest practices and guidelines for a broad range of road management topics and bringing guidance in line with the latest Safe System practice. Section 1 is updated to provide discussion on the concepts of Movement and Place and Network Operation Planning. Section 3 has been revised and a new Section 4 has been added to provide more detailed guidance on road allocation. Section 6 is updated with differential speed limits and amended guidance for establishing speed limits.
