About this event

This course examines design standards, traffic engineering and road safety with a focus on the needs of heavy vehicles, from the truck cabin perspective.

Safe System Solutions Pty Ltd & the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR), with support from the Australian Trucking Association (ATA) are pleased to offer a unique hands on practical training program for those working in road design. This course is an excellent introduction for practitioners to consider heavy vehicle needs and how to best manage them on the road network. The first half of the day explores unique heavy vehicle road design issues including swept paths, sight distances, geometric design elements, rollover prevention and other road safety issues.

In the second part of the day a key feature of the course is the practical component which will involve course participants sitting in the cabin of the truck whilst a licensed heavy vehicle driver will highlight some common areas of concern. This will assist practitioners fully appreciate the challenges of driving from a truck driver’s perspective which will lead them to rethink some aspects of road designs for heavy vehicles.
