Arup co-develops Concept of Operations report for Austroads


30 November 2017

Arupís Transport Planning specialists, in partnership with Monash University, have recently produced a report on behalf of Austroads, the peak organisation of Australasian road transport and traffic agencies.

The Austroads report titled Current Practice and Developments in Concept of Operations across Road Agencies in Australia and New Zealand involved extensive engagement with a number of Australasian jurisdictions and significant literature review.

Overall it was found that Network Operation Planning has been evolving rapidly in recent years, and is now being used in various ways in a number of cities across Australia and New Zealand. However, there is confusion and inconsistencies in the way that network operation planning is undertaken across Australasia, and it is therefore considered that a Concept of Operations Guideline is needed to provide a best practice resource in this area.

The Concept of Operations (ConOps) document provides a best practice resource for those involved in network operations planning, bridging the gap for those who work at the strategic end of the process and those involved in the tactical or operational day-to-day end. Ē
