21/003 Trial of Roughness Detection of Principal Shared Paths to Conduct Condition Assessments

Principal Shared Paths (PSPs) is a significant part of transport network, especially given governments’ increasing emphasis on encouraging active transport modes for their health and environmental benefits. Nevertheless, the provision and maintenance of a good PSP network could be expensive. The condition of PSPs needs to be regularly monitored so that governments can formulate the best maintenance schedule. Currently Main Roads uses visual inspections to assess its PSP pavement conditions. An app, RoadRoid, is being used by a number of local governments to undertake roughness assessments of footpaths. RoadRoid uses the accelerometers in a mobile phone to measure roughness and can also take photos of the network at regular intervals.

CLOSED – 21/002 Data analytics of background PFAS concentrations

Brief Project Description
Significant amounts of PFAS data has been generated over the past few years. To date, there has been no concerted effort to assess the metadata across all sites to determine latent background conditions and trends.
