Road Network Operations Handbook

Historically, road authorities responded to increasing demand by adding capacity, building new roads or expanding the existing ones.

With the high costs and constraints on building conventional infrastructure, maximising the effectiveness of existing systems, including capitalising on new technologies such as Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), has become, for many authorities, a new focus.

This handbook focuses on the soft engineering approaches and tools available to the network operator to improve network operations.
