Join ARRB for an online overview of the methodologies used to update the parameter values for road user cost components. The research was funded by Austroads for the National Guidelines for Transport System Management (NGTSM) review .
The presentation will provide insight into the revised:
- parameter values for fuel, engine oil, tyres, depreciation, value of travel time and crash costs for an extended 20 vehicle classification (including passenger cars, light and heavy commercial vehicles, and buses)
- vehicle operating cost models for both urban and rural roads
- values of travel time provided for vehicle occupants across all vehicle types, as well as values of travel time for freight
- the methodology and estimates of average cost of crashes for both human capital and willingness to pay approaches taking into account crash rates and injury severities across jurisdictions.
