Township Entry Treatments – Queensland Pilot Program

Peterson, P


ARSC conference 2016

EXTENDED ABSTRACT: Formally known as Gateway Treatments in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, initial assessment of a potential Township Entry Treatment mass action program on state controlled roads in Queensland was undertaken by Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads.

Six towns throughout Queensland were chosen for the pilot study to determine the treatment's effectiveness in reducing vehicle speeds in Queensland by comparing before and after implementation data. In the main, the speed threshold treatments proved successful with 85 percentile vehicle speeds in one particular location reducing by 13 km/h.
