What are stars made of? : The process of “star rating” the state controlled road network in Queensland
EXTENDED ABSTRACT: In 2014, the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads embarked upon the epic journey of coding and star rating the entire state controlled road network, a length of over 33,000km. The objective of the project was to capture and code 72 road-related attributes that would allow the Department of Transport and Main Roads to analyse the safety indicators on the network, using the AusRAP and ANRAM methodologies. It would also allow for the captured data to inform other road infrastructure business program development for the department, including asset management and maintenance.
