RetroTek-D assisting ARRB & TMR with road marking condition assessment

Road reflectivity in the spotlight in Queensland

by Australian Road Research Board on January 23, 2022

ARRB in conjunction with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), is currently undertaking a project testing roads throughout Queensland.

The testing which is done annually for TMR, is done to measure the reflectiveness of both the centre and fog lines on Queensland’s road network for sealed roads.

The primary goal of the annual linemarking reflectivity survey is to improve the reflectivity on Queensland’s Road network, reduce network crash risk and identify the network readiness for connected and automated vehicles.

As one of ARRB’s biggest projects, our line reflectivity vehicle is in use to undertake the testing as well as the new RetroTek-D Unit which is in its second year of use.

The data collected from the project will be used with the Department of Transport and Main Road’s existing asset condition plan along with ARRB’s Safety Risk Score, to develop a draft remarking program for 2022/2023.
