Investment in our transport networks is a critical part of nation building. Equally desirable is the need

to develop a prosperous society by increasing national income. Australia’s vast size and her pattern of

human settlement means that safe and efficient transport is a more important element of living standards

than in closely settled countries, where it can be easier to deliver and maintain services.

Efficient transport infrastructure can assist national, state and regional economies grow by promoting

investor confidence, increasing export competitiveness, reducing transport costs and traffic congestion,

improving access to metropolitan markets and ports and supporting local economies.

T he location and importance of economic activity affect:

• the efficiency of transport for employment and social purposes; and

• the movement of freight, rural commodies and manufactured goods.

Therefore, government investment in transport infrastructure, such and roads, has a direct impact on

or national economic well-being. Accident cost savings from improved road safety can contribute to a

more productive economy. Efficiency gains in transport also have the potential to contribute to

attainment of environmental objectives by optimising use of society’s scarce or non-renewable resources.

It is the efficiency with which funding is delivered and targeted that will affect outcomes.

This document, the Annual Report of the Federal Government’s Australian Land Transport Development

(ALTD) P rogram , examines the goal for achieving positive outcom es in the adm inistration of

Commonwealth road network assets and benchmarks our progress towards worthwhile outcomes.

In accordance with s.41 of the Australian Land Transport Development Act 1988 the report details progress

made in carrying out the ALTD Program, together with a statement of monies paid into and out of the

Trust Fund for the year ending 30 June 1998.

A 1991 Special Premiers Conference reinforced the hierarchy of responsibility for roads in Australia. T he Federal Governm ent has sole funding responsibility for the National Highway

(and other roads of national significance), the states are responsible for state arterial roads and local government retains responsibility for

local roads. Within this framework, the Federal Government’s roads strategy has been developed against the background of a national focus towards greater economic diversification and prosperity.

T he strategic directio n for national roads establishes clear federal priorities to maintain and improve the level of service provided by the Commonwealth road asset. It aims to improve

the community’s return on this asset through a more efficient investment of federal resources. The strategy is developed through extensive consultation with the states and territories.

The objectives o f national roads are:

> - to maintain and develop principal links in and between Australia’s major population centres in a manner that is cost-effective and appropriate to

the traffic carried; and

>- to assist trade and commerce by concentrating investment on the National Highway and Roads of National Importance.

The 18,500 km National Highway links all capital cities and most major population centres, while selected feeder or support roads to this network are declared as Roads

of National Importance.

W hile there is an emphasis on economic benefits arising from improving and maintaining national roads, a continuing objective of the National Highway upgrading

is to serve social needs by giving all Australians reasonable access to capital cities

and large provincial centres. Roads of National Importance complement the National Highway system by improving

access to ports, airports, railheads and areas of production and tourism.

Administration of the Commonwealth’s direct spending on roads rests with the Land Division of the Federal Departm ent of Transport and Regional Services. Its role is to administer the Australian Land Transport Development Act 1988

according to law and to advise the federal Minister for Transport and Regional Services on the best possible Commonwealth investments in roads to enhance Australia’s economic, social

and environmental well-being.

T he Land Division advises the Government on the broad policy direction of the program, sets objectives within the available budget and allocates funds to state and territory road authorities in order for the program to be achieved.

T he Australian Land Transport Development (ALTD) Program is the program through which the Federal Government delivers funding for land

transport infrastructure and associated research initiatives. T he program was established under the Australian Centennial Roads Development Act 1988 and started on 1 January 1989. The

legislation was subsequently renam ed the Australian Land Transport Development Act 1988, with effect from 8 January 1991. Road money is administered through a Reserve Money Fund.

The principal network of roads funded under the program is the National Highway. Spending on two other categories - Roads of National Importance and the Black Spot Program - applied from the start of the 1996-97 financial year.

The Federal Government funds all maintenance and new construction work on the National Highway. G overnm ents o f the states and territories in which they are located own the roads comprising the network.

Federal funds under the Roads of N ational Importance category are provided for individual construction projects that increase the compet­ itiveness of export or import-competing industries, or which facilitate tourism. The Pacific Highway is the main beneficiary of this program. A sum of $3.1 billion will be spent improving this route over 10 years to 2006. The Federal Government component of this shared funding is $750 million.

Black spots are sections of the Australian road network that have a history of crashes resulting in death or injury. The Black Spot Program aims to im prove the physical condition or

management of these locations and to encourage im p lem en tatio n o f safety-related road management techniques that have proven value. T he program objective is to provide federal funding to the states and territories as part of a road safety strategy to reduce the road toll through cost-efficient safety oriented projects.

Land transport research projects relate to, and reflect, the national focus of the ALTD Program.

T he Federal G overnm ent’s roads program is delivered through the ALTD Act. T he only other federal legislation impacting on the federal roads program is that relating to environment and heritage considerations.

T he ALTD Act provides road funding to the states and territories through specific purpose grants under s.96 of the Constitution, which allows the Commonwealth to make conditional grants to the states. The Commonwealth has used this power extensively to set the direction of

federal road funding.

T he features o f the ALTD Act relating to its administration are:

project approval by the federal minister;

> - a number of conditions, the key one being to let projects to tender; and

> - measures to improve the efficiency of the state road authorities.

The level of road funding is determined annually in the Budget context.

The ALTD Act is amplified through a set of administrative procedures. These incorporate procedures setting out the tendering requirements and other obligations of the state road authorities acting as the Commonwealth agents in adminis­ tering the program. T hey establish the rules

for the interface between the Commonwealth requirements and the state and territory adminis­

trative arrangements.

Administrative procedures established w ithin the Federal Department of Transport and Regional Services have evolved to:

> - processing project and tender approvals submitted by states;

> - ensuring these m eet Commonwealth requirements to obtain ministerial approval; and

>- paying the states.

The procedures also provide for the Department to be informed about project detail, costs and progress in order to advise the minister.

Each financial year, the Federal M inister for Transport and Regional Services approves a 12-month program of works for the National Highway and Roads of National Importance

categories and guarantees funding for those projects. In the case of the National Highway network, an additional commitment is made to m aintenance funding. Roads o f N a tio n al

Importance projects are not eligible for ongoing maintenance spending.

For new construction work, approval of projects in three stages has been used from the start of the ALTD Program.

Stage 1 - A forward strategy report that places the proposed project in the context of the objectives for the highway, such as improved flood immunity, better safety, or unrestricted use by road trains. Projects are endorsed, but not approved, by the Federal Minister.

Stage 2 - This stage sets out the cost estimates (including the basis for estimates), the economic and social justification and the physical details of the project. Stage 2 approval, involving land acquisition and design work, is provided only for those projects expected to proceed to construction. However, stage 2 approval does not commit the Federal Government to any timing or require the Commonwealth to meet the full cost of the project, nor does it constitute approval for a state or territory to call tenders.

Stage 3 - Only when the Federal Minister gives stage 3a approval is th e C om m onw ealth committed to the total estimated cost. States can proceed to call tenders. A once only variation

to the approved amount may be sought on the awarding of the first contract. Except for extraor­ dinary circumstances, the revised approved am ount (stage 3b) is the limit of the Federal

Government assistance.

T h is process recognises the long gestation period for large road construction projects and also acts as a mechanism to ensure that accurate

cost estimates are developed. Typically, a road project could take two years or longer from initial concept stage to start of construction. Large projects might take four years to build.

To decide the ongoing and new construction works program, the Federal Government assesses the future needs and requirements o f each major National Highway corridor, taking into account:

> - the strategy for that corridor;

> - traffic volumes, both current and projected;

>- safety issues and crash history;

> - the nature and type of vehicle using the corridor;

the presence and amount of freight

moved; and

> - the type of industry served by

each corridor.

N o m inated enhancem ent projects in each corridor are assessed for priority according to relative benefit-to-cost ratios and their importance to safety.

The next step is to determine the possible position of priority projects in the forward Commonwealth Roads Program. This is determined following

examination of the cash flow requirements arising from commitments to ongoing road construction projects and projects announced previously but not yet started; and their priority relative to projects in other corridors.

T he 1974 legislation th a t established the National Highway is the forerunner of today’s Commonwealth Roads Program. The National Highway - now 18,500 km long - is the Federal

Government’s principle road network. It’s 25th anniversary passed in September 1999.

T he selection o f ro u tes com prising the network arose from the work of the form er Commonwealth Bureau of Roads and was agreed

jointly by the Commonwealth and the states. The bureau identified major roads that would link state capitals and connect major population and regional centres to the capital cities.

It selected a network satisfying the following criteria:

encouraged and contribute to a major extent to trade and commerce, overseas and among the states;

> - assisted industry located in major centres of population to be comple­ mentary to industry located in neighbouring major centres;

> - reduced significantly transport costs of the products of rural and/or secondary industry between points of production and points of export or consumption;

> - provided for long distance movement associated with recreation and tourism; and which

improved movements between defence production centres, defence supply and storage locations, and defence establishments generally.

T he 1974 network is still in place. In 1992, the inland routes between Melbourne and Brisbane (the Goulbum Valley, Newell and Gore highways) and between Sydney and Adelaide (the Sturt Highway) were added. In 1994, it was agreed that

the city connections between the end points of the N ational Highway within the mainland capitals would be added to the network.

Before this, the National Highway was not a continuous road network. It stopped at the outskirts of every capital city and began again at the other side.

T h e Federal G overnm ent has set out its objectives for the National Highway as:

> - facilitating overseas and interstate trade and commerce;

> - allowing safe and reliable access by a significant proportion of Australians to the services provided by major population centres;

> - minimising the cost of the National Highway to the Australian community;

> - supporting regional development; and

> - contributing to ecologically sustainable development.

Seventy per cent of all goods moved in Australia travel by road and a considerable percentage of this is moved over the National Highway. Indeed, the non-metropolitan manufacturing

sector served by the National Highway is more sig n ifican t than that in e ith e r Sydney or Melbourne. T he network carries an estimated 15 per cent of all vehicles in Australia, partic­

ularly heavy transports. On some sections, these comprise half the traffic stream.

An estimated 56 commuter airports are strung along its length and it passes through 2 1 cities and towns with a sea port. In addition to the capital cities, it joins 75 towns with a population greater than 10,000 people; and num erous smaller communities.

As an employment generator, it is estimated investment in the National Highway creates or sustains 16,000 direct jobs every year - more jobs per $1 million than if funding were spent on construction of hospitals, public housing or

other civil construction works. (Source: Bureau of Transport Economics, U.S. Bureau of Labour

Statistics.)

Each year the Federal Minister for Transport and Regional Services approves a National Highway Program consisting of ongoing new projects and m aintenance works. Relevant factors in project selection and ranking can include the project’s estimated benefit-to-cost ratio, accident risks and network effects.

T he actual allocation of funds depends on available cash flow and other practical consid­ erations - such as completion of land acquisition, and preparatory work, including environmental

assessments.

The Federal Governm ent has broadened the criteria u n d er w hich roads qualify for

Commonwealth road funding to encompass Roads of National Importance. To be included in this category, candidate roads must generate economic benefits for the nation as a whole and, therefore, be considered an important part

of Australia’s economic infrastructure.

T he Com m onw ealth has determ ined it will concentrate its funding first on those parts of the road network where deficiencies have an adverse impact in inter-regional and international trade

and com m erce. T h ese deficiencies reduce national com petitiveness by lessening the efficiency and reliability of the transport system

and limit the capacity of the economy to adjust to emerging trade opportunities.

All governments have an interest in such issues. However, they are of particular relevance to the Com monwealth given its constitutional responsibilities for interstate and external trade

and its capacity (through the income and company tax systems) to capture the benefits - or suffer the losses - of such deficiencies.

The criteria for Roads of National Importance have been developed in the context of strategies th at em phasise n etw o rk perform ance and concentrate on arterial roads contributing to

attainment of national goals (eg roads that link major roads o f econom ic activity or m ajor

transport facilities).

Roads o f N ational Im portance prom ote regional and national development by:

encouraging inter-regional and interna­ tional trade in goods and services;

> - improving national competitiveness by maximising transport efficiency

and reliability; and

> - allowing for quick adjustments to the pattern and nature of trade in response to emerging national and international economic opportunities.

T he Federal Government provides funding to the states and territories generally on a cost-sharing basis for construction projects on roads that demonstrate their national character by satisfying the above criteria

and which:

> - form part of an integrates transport and land use strategy to

1. improve access to major centres of economic activity by removing bottlenecks or other impediments to efficient road performance,

2. improve links to the National Highway or other major transport facilities,

3. allow people, goods and services to move more freely within major urban and provincial centres;

promote improvements in safety, efficiency and reliability, including the use of new transport technologies;

> - contribute to achieving environmental targets, particularly those relating to air quality and greenhouse gas emissions; and

produce net economic benefits (as measured by an advantageous benefit-to-cost ratio).

Funding is focused on those areas of network inadequacy where the largest net benefits can be

secured in the shortest timeframe. Allocations are subject to the accountability requirements applying to other payments made under the ALTD Program, including open tendering for

all projects.

Funding for Roads of National Importance was allocated from the 1996-97 financial year.

F U N D I N G C O N S I D E R A T I O N S

Roads of National Importance funding is allocated to approved road projects and for construction

work only.

It is a further requirement that Commonwealth funds be m atched by the state and territory (and by local government, when it is involved). T he state must maintain its historic funding

patterns for such roads, n o t m erely replace F ederal G overnm ent funding for its own. Generally, federal road funding made available under the Roads of National Importance category should not be used for design, land purchase or administrative activities. T he government’s election commitments will be given priority.

E F F I C I E N C Y I N C E N T I V E S

All proposals are subject to benefit-to-cost analysis. T he objective is to fund warranted projects, not to allocate money on the basis of

some concept of geographic equity (through fixed state or territory shares). All candidate projects are subject to the ALTD requirements for open tendering. Local councils are permitted to tender, but will not be conferred competitive advantages, in keeping with national competition policy requirements.

T he Road Safety Black Spot P rogram was introduced as part of the Federal Government’s com m itm ent to reduce crashes - and th eir consequences - on Australian roads.

Road crashes cost the Australian community $7 billion every year. About 60 per cent of fatal crashes and 50 per cent of serious injury crashes occur outside metropolitan areas. T he program targets those locations with a proven crash history resulting in fatalities or trauma.

It is directed at improving the physical condition or m anagem ent o f th ese locations. It also encourages implementation of safety-related traffic management techniques and other safety measures that have proven road safety value.

Typical treatm ents can include installation of roundabouts, traffic signals or im proved warning signs.

Based on past experience, a reduction of up to two-thirds in serious casualty crashes may be expected at treated sites, with total benefits

exceeding costs by about 4:l.

About $150 million was allocated to the program until the year 2000 - $37.79 million of this in 1999-2000.

The Federal G overnm ent has com m itted to extending the program a further two years (until 2001-02) with annual funding of approximately $40 million. Funding allocations are made to the states and territories on a population and road crash casualty basis.

Generally, funding is available for treatment of black spot sites with a proven history of crashes. Project proposals must demonstrate a benefit-

to-cost ratio of at least two. Up to 20 per cent of proposals may also be considered on the recommendations flowing from a road safety audit. The program criteria allow for black spot locations and ‘black’ road lengths to be treated.

Effective rural road construction remedies such as shoulder sealing, line marking, audible line edges and passing lanes can be undertaken.

Widespread community consultation and partic­ ipation are fundamental to the program and ensures that local concerns are addressed. States and T e rrito rie s play an im p o rtan t role.

Consultative panels with federal senators or m em bers o f parliam ent as chair have been established in each state and territory. The panels include representatives of state road and

tra n sp o rt agencies, local governm ent and community and road user groups. Community groups, motoring organisations, industry groups, councils and others are invited to nominate black spot sites for investigation.

A total of 1122 projects with an estimated total value of $117 million were approved in the

first th ree years of the federal Black Spot Program (1996-97 to 1998-99). Approximately $55 million has been spent in urban areas and

$62 million in rural areas.

T he most common treatments at crash sites in urban areas were installation of roundabouts and traffic signals. Shoulder sealing was the most common treatment in rural areas. More than

70 per cent of projects are either completed or under construction.

A list of projects approved under the Black Spot Program is included as an appendix to this report.

There is no universally accepted definition of a ‘black spot’. To be classified as ‘black spots’, sites generally are assessed in term s of their

degree of hazard or probability of being associated with a crash. T he risk of a crash is not uniform throughout the road network. At certain locations the level of risk will be higher than the general level of risk in the surrounding area. Crashes will tend to be concentrated at these relatively high- risk locations. Locations that have an abnormally high num ber of crashes are described as ‘high hazard’, ‘hazardous’ or ‘black spot’.

Although the term ‘black spot’ suggests a precise location, it is used often to refer to a section of road. Usually, black spots are linked to particular characteristics of dte road environment, such as busy intersections and sharp bends.

Black spots are difficult to define precisely because of the are many factors associated with them. These include the degree and type of risk, road characteristics, traffic exposure and crash

severity. Sites with potentially hazardous features sometimes are described as ‘grey spots’.

One approach to black spot analysis draws on m edical concepts. T his approach involves identifying the symptom (crashes at a site) and the dysfunction at the site and prescribing

remedial measures.

The medical experience indicates that a symptom is not always associated with the apparent area of origin of the problem. The medical approach requires an overall examination of the patient to facilitate diagnosis. By analogy, a black spot should be regarded as a m anifestation of a

dysfunction at a particular location on a road; considered not in isolation, but as part o f a traffic network. Prescribed treatment, therefore, may involve the site in question, other sites or even wider areas.

Traffic authorities sometimes set ‘reaction levels’ - the number of crashes at which the authority initiates detailed investigation and remedial action. These reaction levels should be set with reference to the num ber and type of crashes (such as right-angle, or right turn crashes, or crashes involving serious injury); type of road (such as length of road section, defined limits of an intersection); and period of time (such as multiples of 12-m onth periods).

The federal Black Spot Program adopted generic criteria for a black spot as a site, road length o r area with a h isto ry o f casualty crashes. T h is defin itio n o f a black spot facilitated

participation by all states and territories, as well as local governm ent, in the program and accommodated diverse administrative practices. Separate provision exists for approval of funding

for road safety enhancem ent measures based on non-site specific criteria.

Funds made available under the Black Spot Program are available for works on public roads regardless of ownership or control other than

declared N ational Highways and declared sections of Roads of N ational Im portance. Separate funding is available from the National Highway Safety and U rgent M inor W orks

Program for rectifying black spots on th at network.

On other roads, black spot works eligible for funding may include any safety -re la te d construction, alteration or remedial treatment. T he F ederal O ffice o f Road Safety, w hich administers the Black Spot Program, has produced a helpful guide for crash analysts and traffic management engineers.

T he m inim um elig ib ility crite rio n is an average of three casualty crashes per kilometres of the length of road in question, m easured over five years. Alternatively, the road length

proposed for treatment must be among the top 10 per cent of sites identified in each state which have a dem onstrably higher crash rate than other roads in the region.

In addition to the above, up to 20 per cent of program funds are available for the treatm ent of sites, lengths or areas that may not meet this crash history criteria, but which have been

recommended for treatm ent on the basis of an official road safety audit report.

Funding may also be available for other road safety measures that, in the view of the Minister for Transport and Regional Services, assist in progressing national road safety initiatives.

When deciding which projects will be funded under the program, the M inister shall take account of:

whether the project is eligible;

> - economic benefits that can be identified;

> - the funds available for urban and rural projects;

> - the funds available for hazardous locations for which an official road safety audit report has been obtained;

> - contributions to the project from sources other than the Commonwealth;

> - whether the expected Commonwealth commitment is less than $500,000;

> - whether the project can be completed within the timeframe of the program;

> - whether the state or territory has maintained its own spending on black spot projects.
