IPWEA-QNT releases 2nd Edition of the Lower Order Road Design Guideline

The Institute of Public Works Engineering Australasia, Queensland Northern Territory (IPWEA-QNT) is proud to announce the release of the 2nd Edition of our Lower Order Road Design Guideline.

The First Edition of the Lower Order Road Design Guideline was released in 2016 and has been extremely popular and widely adopted by the public works civil engineering sector across Queensland and beyond.

The lower order road network is estimated at over 70% of the Queensland Local Government road network and also represents a significant portion of the State Government road network. This Guideline has been developed to help provide more cost-effective design solutions for lower order roads.

In the Second Edition we now provide guidance for traffic volumes up to 250 vehicles per day and design speeds up to 110km/hr. There are numerous other topics that have been included in this edition based on feedback and requests from our Review Committee.

IPWEA-QNT General Manager, Stakeholder Engagement & Business Development, Jesper Jensen, welcomed the announcement saying:

"We are indebted to the tireless efforts of our Review Committee in particularly to Tony Gallagher (Chair) and Rod Moss of Harrison Infrastructure Group. This update would not have been possible without their efforts and we thank them for their contribution."
