RMA was engaged by the Department of Transport and Main Roads to undertake a preliminary investigation of suitable locations for a heavy vehicle decoupling facility on the Warrego Highway. The decoupling facility will have significant benefits for the transport industry, including increasing freight efficiencies, travel time savings and economical benefits from reduced trips along the TSRC toll road.
RMA identified six sites and layout geometries between Helidon Spa in the west and Hatton Vale to the east. At each site, multiple options were identified.
The preferred site and layouts were then ranked with their respective criteria. Cost estimates were undertaken and the final rankings of the preferred options were tabled.
