Research Report 026 Highway permits programme review

Published: | Category: Integrated land use and transport systems , Research programme , Research & reports | Audience: General

The Highway Permits computer program stores overload capacity data for all state highway bridges, and some local authority bridges, together with a description of the highway network. On entry of details of an overweight vehicle and its proposed route, the program provides details of restrictions which will be imposed on the vehicle as it crosses any of the bridges on the route.

The report records a study make to determine if operating economies or increased efficiency would be gained in changing the method of operation of the program or the type of data stored, and to determine whether changes to existing calculation elements, and/or addition of new ones would be economically justified.
