Level of Service for heavy vehicles on rural roads
The purpose of this survey is to develop a practical approach to the management of rural arterials that is intended to provide a fit-for-purpose level of service (LOS) for each of the major rural arterial categories that comprise the rural arterial road network. The definition of a fit-for-purpose LOS is expected to be determined from the information and data derived from this survey. The survey is directed at three main groups of stakeholders: heavy vehicle drivers, heavy vehicle fleet managers, and road infrastructure managers. The outcome of these surveys will be used to influence changes to maintenance strategies aimed at meeting a fit-for-purpose LOS for each rural arterial category. In some cases, this could mean that incremental road upgrade practices may be needed to deliver an appropriate LOS for some rural arterials with higher levels of functionality, based primarily on strategic importance and levels of freight traffic.
