ARRB engages in DG study

  • Posted on Tuesday 17th, September 2019.

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) has commissioned the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) to undertake a Dangerous Goods (DG) movement study.

The purpose of this project, according to ARRB, is to understand where dangerous goods are being transported by road in New South Wales with a focus on the Sydney metropolitan region to identify and protect DG routes.

The study will focus on the transportation of bulk tanked flammable gas, flammable liquid and chemicals with the use of telematics data from DG transportation vehicles to identify movements.

Transport Certification Australia (TCA) will reportedly undertake the analysis in a de-identified and aggregated manner to ensure privacy.

In other news, the National Transport Commission (NTC) highlighted an alternative DG emergency response guide.
