About ARRB

Formed in 1960, the ARRB Group (Australian Road Research Board) provides research, consulting and information services to the road and transport industry and is the leading provider of road research and best practice workshops in Australia.

ARRB applies research outputs to develop equipment that collects road and traffic information, and software that assists with decision-making across road networks. ARRB’s member organisations include federal, state and local government bodies responsible for managing the nation’s transport and road networks and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

ARRB has developed a suite of tools to assist road managers (including road safety practitioners) to identify hazards and deficiencies in the road environment, proactively assess hazards and treatments, and set appropriate speed limits.

Through independent road safety research and consulting projects, ARRB develops innovative solutions to address road safety issues throughout Australasia and the wider international community. Road safety engineering research focuses on ways to improve the road environment in order to reduce road safety risk, as part of the Safe System approach.
