TTA Rest Area Strategy – Project Overview

This project will follow a step by step process to determine the need for and location for heavy vehicle rest areas in Tasmania, and prioritise these to form a recommended Rest Area Strategy.

The methodology is set out below and is based on both the National Transport Commission advice in the NTC Rest Area Strategy Plans, and the 2012 Austroads Research Report: A Proposed Heavy Vehicle Rest Area Needs and Prioritisation Methodology.

Specifically, the Austroads report recommends the following 7 steps be taken when developing a strategy for the establishment of rest areas.
