The Austroads Glossary of Terms provides an A-Z list of more than 2,500 road transport terms with definitions.

The Glossary of Terms was developed to bring consistency to the use of terms and definitions by Austroads members and other stakeholders in the road and transport industry. It also helps users of Austroads publications by providing supporting information for the terms used in the Austroads body of work.

This 2014 edition of the Glossary of Terms includes new terms and revised definitions to reflect the Austroads work undertaken from 2010-2013.
