Karndacharuk, A., Hassan, A.

Safer Roads

ARSC conference 2017

Austroads has identified the lack of a mutually agreed incident management framework across the member organizations as a gap in the traffic incident management practice in Australia and New Zealand. A research project has been undertaken to develop such framework based on a review of current local and international incident management techniques and understanding. This paper presents a review outcome and the proposed framework with a focus on advanced traffic incident management techniques to minimise traffic disruption and road safety risks while maintaining a safe workplace for responders.
