Gazetted High Productivity Vehicle Network Strategy - Transport

Tasmanian Gazetted HPV Network StrategyFigure 3 shows the proportion of the statewide freight task (blue line), that is carried by highproductivity vehicles (orange line). Most of the State’s HPV freight task moves along Tasmania’smajor roads, with half of the HPV freight task across Tasmania moved via the Bass and MidlandHighway. Other key HPV routes include the Bridport Main Road, East Tamar Highway, RidgleyHighway, Esk Main Road, Lyell Highway, Tasman Highway and the Brooker Highway. These roadsthat carry the highest number and tonnages via High Productivity Vehicles, generally meet theTasmanian guidelines for High Productivity Vehicles (Figure 4).Figure 3 ‐ Tonnages carried by High Productivity Vehicles compared to the overall freight task(from Tasmanian Freight Survey)The forestry industry is a major user of High Productivity Vehicles, including movement of logs,woodchips and wood products, comprising 40% of the tonnage of the freight task moved by HPVs.Agriculture is also a major user of HPVs across the State, along with movement of mining oresbetween the west coast and Burnie Port and movement of consumer goods between ports andmajor urban centres.Page 3 of 9


Tasmanian Gazetted HPV Network StrategyIn terms of the routes reviewed in the Review of the Gazetted High Productivity Vehicle Networkreport, 67% of the tonne kilometres travelled by High Productivity Vehicles across Tasmania movedon routes that comply with the Tasmanian Guidelines. Routes that were marginally below theTasmanian guidelines carried 21% of the HPV task, by tonne kilometres, with about 12% of the HPVtask moving on routes that do not meet the Tasmanian guidelines. As such, the majority ofTasmania’s freight task moved by High Productivity Vehicles is on roads which either meet theTasmanian guidelines for High Productivity Vehicles, or are marginally below these guidelines.Past experience with using High Productivity VehiclesHigh Productivity Vehicles have been operating on specified segments of Tasmania’s road networksince 1993, and the experience with using these vehicles has been that they have operated safelyover this entire period, and have assisted in reducing freight costs and efficiency across a number ofindustries.Reduced exposure to heavy vehicles on High Productivity Vehicle routesDue to fact that High Productivity Vehicles carry more freight per trip, on routes where they arepermitted, there are fewer heavy vehicles on the road. As such, the use of HPVs reduce exposure tothe risk of crashes involving heavy vehicles.Accidents involving HPVs are uncommonOn a per kilometre basis across Tasmania’s HPV network, regardless of the standard of the routesection, accidents involving High Productivity Vehicles are infrequent.A recent analysis of heavy vehicle accidents across Tasmania, found that while collisions betweenheavy vehicles and passenger vehicles are more likely to result in fatalities, multiple vehicle crashesinvolving heavy vehicles are eight times more likely to be caused by the other road user (than theheavy vehicle driver). Similarly, heavy vehicles are half as likely to be involved in a loss of controlcrash, compared to other vehicles.2. Planning and providing the HPV NetworkPlanning Tasmania’s future freight systemContinual changes in production and industry within Tasmania, along with the changing economicsof transport modes, mean that the Tasmanian Government must continually look at the way that thetransport system is delivered, to ensure that it delivers efficient, cost‐effective freight movement forfreight demanders. While increasing productivity of heavy vehicles delivers efficiencies for freightdemanders, Government needs to balance these outcomes with safety, to ensure that highproductivity vehicles do not compromise the safety of the transport system for all users.To balance the economic and social benefits provided by freight movement, with its social andenvironmental impacts, it is important that the Tasmanian Government plans for the state’s futurefreight system.The Tasmanian Government puts considerable effort into planning and providing a transport systemthat balances these objectives. Over the last five years, this work has included development of thePage 4 of 9


Tasmanian Gazetted HPV Network StrategyTasmanian Infrastructure Strategy, regional integrated transport plans for Tasmania’s three regionsand developing a strong evidence‐based planning capability (e.g. Tasmanian Freight Survey).DIER has also developed the Tasmanian Road Safety Strategy 2007‐2016 to provide a strategicdirection for reducing fatalities and serious injuries on Tasmania’s roads. This Strategy outlines fourkey Strategic Directions to improve safety of the transport system:Safer Travel SpeedsBest Practice InfrastructureIncreased Safety for Young Road UsersEnhanced Vehicle SafetyDIER is also developing the Tasmanian Freight Strategy to provide a clear direction for Tasmania’sfuture freight system. It will provide an integrated strategy across Tasmania’s roads, rail networksand ports, including outlining Tasmania’s key freight network and future investment in infrastructureupgrades.Investment in Tasmania’s future freight systemThe Tasmanian Government has made considerable investment in infrastructure projects acrossTasmania’s High Productivity Vehicle network, such as the Brighton Bypass, East Tamar Highwayupgrades and Bass Highway upgrades. Additionally, Government has made significant investment inother elements of the freight system, including the Brighton Transport Hub and improvements tothe State’s rail network.The Tasmanian Government is also making a series of investments in the HPV Network across theState. In the north‐east, the Tasmanian and Australian Governments are investing over $40 millionin the North East Freight Roads package. This includes:Tasman Highway: Derby – Gladstone Main Roado Widening and curve improvementGladstone Main Road: Tasman Highway – Herricko Widening and curve improvementBridport Main Road: Scottsdale – Bridport turn‐offo Widening and curve improvementProssers Forest Road and Camden Roado Widening, junction upgrades and drainage improvementsMathinna/Evercreech areao Replacement of 5 bridges and strengthening of 1 bridgeOn the west coast, the Tasmanian Government is investing over $20 million in the MurchisonHighway on road improvements. This includes $15 million between the Cradle MountainDevelopment Road and Anthony Main Road for widening, passing bays and curve improvements.The Tasmanian Road Safety Strategy – Infrastructure Program is funding the installation of roadtreatments specifically targeted at improving safety across Tasmania’s road network. This includesPage 5 of 9


Tasmanian Gazetted HPV Network Strategyinfrastructure to reduce or prevent head‐on crashes, such as audible centreline markings, wire ropesafety fencing along painted medians and dual carriageways.The Tasmanian Government has also funded a number of road upgrades on the High ProductivityVehicle network through the Community Roads program, including:Upgrade of the Mersey Main Road – Bass Highway intersectionProvision of overtaking lanes on the Huon HighwayImprovements of the road access to Bell Bay portRoad widening and pavement rehabilitation on the West Tamar HighwayUpgrade of the Bass Highway – Stanley junctionUpgrade of parts of the Ridgley Main RoadShoulder sealing along the Esk Main RoadSealing of the Lake Secondary Road between Breona and Brandum CreekConstruction of new access to the Westbury Industrial ParkImproving vehicle and driver safetyThe Tasmanian Government has put considerable effort into improving the safety of heavy vehiclesand driver safety. The Heavy Truck Safety Advisory Council (HeTSAC) has continued its role ofdeveloping and progressing initiatives to improve heavy vehicle road safety and reduced crashesinvolving heavy vehicles. This includes the development of a comprehensive Heavy Vehicle SafetyCode that brings together ‘best practice’ information on safe systems and practices for adoption byheavy vehicle drivers and operators.A recent example of education actions aimed at improving heavy vehicle safety were the heavyvehicle rollover prevention seminars for industry conducted towards the end of 2010. HeTSAC isnow working with the transport industry and purchasers of transport services on strategies that willlead to this training being delivered to heavy vehicle drivers.The Tasmanian Government also employs a number of Transport Inspectors across the State, whohave a key role in undertaking road heavy vehicle compliance and enforcement duties. Their rolealso includes working with Tasmania Police and Workplace Standards Tasmania Inspectors.Tasmania is also committed to the National Performance Based Standards Scheme, which offers thepotential for heavy vehicle operators to achieve higher productivity and safety through innovativevehicle design.Page 6 of 9

Tasmanian Gazetted HPV Network Strategy3. Route specific mitigation measuresThe Tasmanian Gazetted High Productivity Vehicle (HPV) Review has assessed the current HPVnetwork against guidelines developed for Tasmanian roads. The Review has found that:77 route sections do not meet the Tasmanian guidelines:o 28 State Road route sectionso 15 Local Road and “Last Mile 2 ” route sections in the North West;o 15 Local Road and “Last Mile” route sections in the North East;o 19 Local Road and “Last Mile” route sections in the South.35 route sections are marginally below the Tasmanian guidelines:o 9 State Road route sections;o 9 Local Road and “Last Mile” route sections in the North West;o 10 Local Road and “Last Mile” route sections in the North East;o 7 Local Road and “Last Mile” route sections in the South.In general, these deficiencies relate to lane and shoulder widths, vertical and horizontal alignments,traffic mix and volumes.The attached table (Appendix 1) provides a summary of information for each route section,including:Length (km);StatusStrategic importance;A description of some of the issues on each route;Freight tonnage – total and HPV; andSpeed limit.Analysis of the crash data indicates that the crash rates involving High Productivity Vehicles are verylow, regardless of the standard of the route section. As such, there is a low need for risk mitigationmeasures, and warning signs along individual routes is an appropriate mitigation measure in mostcases. The Tasmanian Government will continue to monitor utilisation of the High ProductivityVehicle network and crash statistics, and implement other risk mitigation measures whereappropriate.The mitigation measures to be applied for each route is discussed in the attached tables (Appendix1). The factors considered when deciding to apply mitigation were:The length of the route section.The prevailing speed limit on the route section.The number of HPV movements per day on the route section.2 Last mile routes are road sections between dispersed, low volumes freight locations and major links in thefreight network connecting to key freight destinations.Page 8 of 9


Tasmanian Gazetted HPV Network StrategyRoutes where further mitigation measures are not being applied are:Route sections where mitigation measures have already been applied (e.g. signage)Route sections less than 5km long, with speed limits of 70 km/h or less, are deemed not torequire further mitigation.Route sections with fewer than 10 HPV movements per day.On route sections with fewer than 10 HPV movements per day (that do not meet the TasmanianGuidelines), DIER will review whether these should remain part of the Gazetted HPV Network. Thisreview will be undertaken in consultation with road owners and industry, as part of the ongoingprocess of reviewing the suitability of the Gazetted HPV Network for moving Tasmania’s overallfreight task. Measures to be considered on these routes include seasonal signage, restrictions ontiming of usage and removal from the Gazetted HPV network.Although there are individual exceptions, mitigation measures will generally be applied on routesections more than 5km long, with 10 or more HPV movements per day and with speed limitsgreater than 70 km/h. These routes will have Large Truck Warning (W5‐120) signs installed at 5kmspacings along their entire length.The approximate cost for installation of signs along these routes is $400,000, which includes:$60,000 (50 signs) on Local Road and “Last Mile” route sections that do not meet theTasmanian guidelines;$175,200 (146 signs) on State Road route sections that do not meet the Tasmanianguidelines;$156,000 (130 signs) on State Road route sections marginally below the Tasmanianguidelines.Prioritisation of route sections for treatment has not yet been undertaken.Further mitigation measures are currently being considered by the Tasmanian Government,including:Intelligent Access 3 , which has been introduced in the major eastern States, and implicationsfor its introduction within Tasmania is being considered by DIER,Communication between vulnerable road users and HPVs (e.g. school buses),Lower speed limits for HPVs along specific routes,Curfews on HPV use along specific routes,Upgrade of key HPV routes to meet the Tasmanian guidelines, andOngoing review Schedule 1 of the Vehicle Operations Notice 2010 to ensure that all gazettedroutes are suitable for moving Tasmania’s overall freight task.3 Intelligent Access is a program for monitoring vehicle compliance with specific access conditions, via globalpositioning systems (GPS), in‐vehicle sensors and transmitters which transmit vehicle performance andlocation data.Page 9 of 9
