Enhancing the quality of life for all Queensland communities

The Lower Order Road Design Guidelines has been developed 

to assist practitioners with a risk-based approach for the design and construction of lower order assets held by local government in Queensland. As the lower order road network accounts for over 70% of local and state controlled networks throughout Queensland, this approach allows stakeholders to maximise the return on funds invested.

To assist with the implementation of these guidelines, a training program has been developed that provides key stakeholders with the relevant knowledge and skills to apply the strategies embedded in the document in a practical and consistent way.

There are a number of key stakeholders who influence the outcomes throughout the design and construction process. In order to achieve consistent outcomes, it is essential that all of these stakeholders’ have a common understanding of the risk management strategies and how they apply at each stage of the design and construction process from concept through to completion.

Typical attendees include:

  • Planners
  • Designers
  • Engineers
